Episode 13: Kory Saunders - "This is for you, too."
Study Abroad can be a great catalyst to expose more students of color to the greater world. Language acquisition, intercultural skills, and networking are just some of things that underrepresented students can get if only they have access.
Which is why Kory Saunders is here.
Kory is a study abroad professional, and founder of Kultural Kurators, who as you will hear is equally passionate about representation both on the student and the student affairs professional side. She shares her story of going international — from learning Spanish at a young age, living in Europe to complete her graduate degree as well as how she transitioned from marketing to the field of higher education.
This episode discuss the barriers that keep underrepresented groups from going, challenge the idea of deficiency thinking and talk strategies to diversify the study abroad profession.
