International Educator - May/June 2018 - 55

Diversify Faculty
A more diverse faculty will broaden international education now
and in the future. Because professors both encourage students to
study abroad and design and lead programs themselves, changing
the composition of the faculty is critical. Therefore, we need to
encourage more students to see the path to the professoriate.
In particular, many students from underrepresented backgrounds lack access to the social and intellectual capital that leads
to earning a doctorate and becoming a professor. We can help
these students by being more transparent about the degree and
how international education fits into it. International educators
develop mentoring and apprenticeship programs where graduate
students across a variety of disciplines learn from faculty who are
designing faculty-led programs or advising international students.

Support Minority-Serving Institutions
Minority-serving institutions (MSIs) have the most successful models for student advising, support, and faculty diversity.
Through intensive, individualized mentoring, these institutions
have overcome financial, political, and social barriers to help
minority students succeed.
A recent report from the University of Pennsylvania Center for
Minority-Serving Institutions noted that 40 percent of minority
students attend MSIs-yet MSI students, administrators, and
faculty are often underrepresented in international education.
We can help by finding more ways to include MSIs in the field
through partnerships, public policy changes, and dialogues.

Fellowships, Fellowships, Fellowships
Like any other field, there are specific pathways that funnel students into careers in international education. Prestigious international fellowships such as the Fulbright U.S. Student Program,
the Critical Language Scholarship, the Boren Awards, the JET
Program, and the Gilman Scholarship represent transformative
academic opportunities that allow students to receive funding to
gain valuable experience abroad.
Most importantly, they connect students with a network of other
program alumni and resources upon their return. This network
helps students learn about career pathways and meet hiring managers. Fellowships programs are committed to cultivating a diverse
applicant pool and representation amongst the recipients, but there
are still too few students from diverse backgrounds who submit
competitive applications. More institutional support for fellowshipadvising resources, specifically at MSIs, would represent a significant
investment in our students and, by extension, our profession.

Imagination
Reaching our goal to diversify the profession of international
education will require creative and imaginative solutions that may
seem lofty and unattainable right now, but will result in measurable change in the future. It's too easy for cynicism to become
our default mode. We can be more effective professionals if we

acknowledge our biases and blind spots, and if we remain willing
to be open to different views and perspectives.
Undertaking this exercise will help us look past the jargon and
latest buzzwords and instead imagine what we could each do
differently in our work to impact the field. What does achieving
diversity look like at your institution, and how can you get there?
What hard questions can we ask? What new relationships can we
build to bring new voices to the table?
The stakes are too high not to act. As you read this, another
generation of talented students and young professionals are
forging their career paths. International educators need to make
a convincing argument that our field is a viable and meaningful
vocation with the potential to make profound change in our
world-and that different voices and backgrounds have significant
contributions to make.
Victor Green's guide harnessed previously untapped intellectual energy to unlock new possibilities for African American
travelers in the United States. International educators can do the
same thing globally. n
