Help students from diverse communities gain leadership skills and experiences at home and abroad.
The Division of Equity and Inclusion is a hub of information and a center for resources and expertise supporting equity, inclusion and diversity. Our efforts are guided by the I.D.E.A.L. framework: Inclusion, Diversity, Evaluation, Achievement, and Leadership.
Your support for Leadership Enrichment Internships (LEI) and scholarships for students in study abroad programs helps students from diverse and underserved communities gain skills and innovative experiences leading to success academically, professionally, personally and as contributing citizens.

According to the Washington Post, in 2016–17, women accounted for more than two-thirds of American students studying abroad, a proportion that has remained constant for more than a decade.
Study abroad offers unique learning and cross-cultural opportunities as students are immersed in other cultures in and out of classrooms.
Programs build cultural consciousness, critical thinking, and essential professional skills in our ever-growing multicultural society and globally-connected world.
