Call for Article Submissions

The Global Impact Exchange: A Publication of Diversity Abroad solicits article proposal submissions three times a year based on a contemporary thematic topic. Article submissions can take various forms, including: scholarly articles, opinion pieces, book reviews, student stories, personal narratives, and research findings, among others. We encourage contributors who have experience working with diverse and underrepresented groups in global education including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQI+, persons with disabilities, religious diversity, high financial need, community college students, and first generation college students. Selected articles will be shared widely through Diversity Abroad communication platforms.

The GIE Call for Article Submissions is now closed. We thank you for submitting your ideas.
