Diversity & Inclusion
Eduardo Contreras has been invited by Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad to be a guest editor for two special issues on “Diversity and Inclusion in Education Abroad,” along with Lily López-McGee (Howard University), David Wick (Middlebury Institute of International Studies), and Tasha Willis (Cal State Los Angeles). The virtual issue highlights the most important articles related to diversity, equity, and inclusion that Frontiers has published since it began in 1995. The introductory article and virtual issue can be read here.
The guest editors also invite scholars to submit their own original research for a forthcoming special issue featuring new research on diversity, inclusion, and equity in education abroad to this peer-reviewed journal. The call for articles is available here.

As part of ongoing efforts to foster and sustain an inclusive environment for all members of the campus community, UP is participating in the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) Diversity and Equity Campus Climate Survey. The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete with your anonymous feedback on the campus climate. It is open to students, faculty, and staff in order to gather a representative overview of campus experiences.
The partnership with HEDS is being conducted in order to ensure that no identifying information will be sent to any UP official, ensuring complete anonymity of responses. Importantly, results from the survey will be compared to national averages to gain better insight about UP, making it critical that you share your feedback.
Invitations and reminders generated from HEDS will be sent via campus email starting on Tuesday, February 5. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Eduardo Contreras, assistant provost for international education, diversity, and inclusion at email@example.com.
