CEA's Diversity Initiative

Diversity Initiative


At CEA, we seek to make the study abroad scholarship experience a reality for as many students as possible, and that includes students who come from underserved, underrepresented backgrounds. Through engaging with new people and cultures overseas, diverse students can come to better understand themselves and experience the affirming reality of global human interconnectedness. We believe that increasing student diversity in international education benefits not only the students who go abroad but the communities they join, our society, and the world at large. 

Diversity Statement


As an international organization dedicated to global education, CEA encourages the appreciation of diversity to cultivate respect, inclusion, and academic excellence. We advocate for all members of our community to “Embrace Differences,” one of our core values. 

CEA fosters diversity by: 

  • Offering ongoing awareness training for staff and faculty; 

  • Facilitating inclusive student experiences through pre-departure advising, on-site arrival orientation, and dynamic curricula that emphasize cross-cultural understanding and global connectedness; 

  • Creating educational opportunities for students to learn about different cultures and languages; 

  • Providing resources and support staff so students can report concerns and seek appropriate assistance; 

  • Opening doors for students from diverse backgrounds with CEA's Diversity Scholarship.



We want to show our students and university partners we care about diversity where it counts: through funding. That’s why we created the CEA Shop. When students and their families purchase our destination-specific products, the profits go toward funding CEA’s Diversity Scholarship. Our T-shirts, hoodies, mugs, and tote bags feature beautifully illustrated designs for each of our destinations that can serve as a longtime reminder of a student’s time abroad. The CEA Shop gives our students the opportunity to help their peers go abroad, tapping into their desire to make meaningful contributions to their communities and the world.  

Join us in our commitment to increasing student diversity abroad.

CEA is a proud member of IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative, which seeks to “mobilize resources and commitments with the goal of doubling and diversifying the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade.”
