Report: Equity, Access and Inclusion in Global Learning Abroad 

Release Date: Nov. 4th, 2021
 
The report includes data from the 2018-2019 academic year and a demographic assessment of global learning participants based on the university's  Student Diversity Self-ID Report
 

The report also outlines what we heard from students in our March 2021 Symposium, where students from equity-deserving groups reflected on the barriers to engaging in international activity, their unique experiences abroad, and the ideas they have to improve programming for future participants.  

This report was funded by the Government of Canada's Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program, administered by Universities Canada.

What is Global Learning?

Our Vision

Ryerson International’s vision for global learning at home and abroad refers to activities that engage with the diversity of the world’s cultures, knowledge systems, worldviews, perspectives, and nations (i.e. diverse ways of knowing and being). 

Our hope is that these activities are shaped by Toronto Metropolitan University’s unique vision to advance equity and community inclusion, alongside our community’s commitment to prepare students to face the world’s interconnected, global challenges while respecting and engaging with diverse, multifaceted perspectives and approaches.
