Diversity Advisory Committee

In February 2015, ISE launched a cross-departmental Diversity Advisory Committee. The ISE Diversity Advisory Committee or IDAC, comprises of ISE staff members across multiple departments, where each member leads a specific focus area. IDAC members commit to work together with committee members, but more importantly, with all ISE staff to help meet our goals to increase enrollment, resources, and support systems for underrepresented voyagers, before, during and after their voyage.

We commit to strengthen our perception as leaders in diversity in the International Education field by increasing collaboration with key organizations, university partners, and international field operators. We also commit to find ways to increase diversity and inclusion in the Fort Collins, CO office.

Our Purpose

  • Increase enrollment of underrepresented groups amongst students, faculty and staff
  • Enhance support systems/resources for underrepresented groups pre-voyage, during the voyage and within alumni communities
  • Build and/or strengthen relationships with key university partners regarding diversity initiatives
  • Promote Diversity & Inclusion in the ISE home Office

Who We Support

Our goal is to increase enrollment and support services for voyagers identifying with underrepresented groups. Underrepresented groups can be specific to:

  • Ethnicity/Race
  • LGBTQIA++
  • Gender
  • Citizenship
  • Religion
  • Disabilities
  • First Generation
  • Veterans
  • High Financial Need
