  • ACA Think Pieces May 2021

    On 28 May, ACA published the May Think Piece on Supporting higher education institutions to develop strategic plans for more inclusive mobilities. Both authors Valérie Van Hees, Coordinator, and Dominique Montagnese, Inclusive mobility expert, are from the Support Centre for Inclusive Higher Education (SIHO), Belgium. In this article, the authors point to the need for more concrete objectives and action from national systems and make the case for more data collection and impact assessments on underrepresented students. In order to begin remedying the divide between inclusion-related mobility ambitions and realities, the piece ends with frameworks and focused reflection as starting points for designing and updating inclusion strategies and building institutional communities. The article is part of the ACA Think Piece series Inclusion in International Higher Education: European Perspectives & Insights.
