Marion Ferguson, exchange programs manager for the Canadian Studies Center, was awarded funding to attend the 2023 Global Inclusion Conference hosted by Diversity Abroad.

Ferguson was invited to participate in the conference as a panel speaker for the session “IDEAS for Indigenous Inclusion in Education Abroad.” The panel will be comprised of grantees from the U.S. Department of State’s Increase and Diversify Education Abroad for U.S. Students (IDEAS) program. The Canadian Studies Center received an IDEAS grant in 2022 to focus on increasing Indigenous student participation in study abroad programming.

The funding for Ferguson’s conference participation has been provided by World Learning and the IDEAS program.
