RAISE Center

The RAISE Center mission is to understand and enhance the experiences, engagement, and development of abroad and international students. Through respectful partnerships, systematic lines of inquiry, and longitudinal data collection, we aim to:

  • Advance abroad and international students’ growth and development through engagement
  • Enhance theory on intercultural awareness via an understanding of the roles intersectionality and power have in cross-cultural interactions
  • Improve global competence opportunities for all stakeholders at schools and universities
  • Understand globally-mobile students’ impact on campuses and school cultures across the world
