This study abroad program is part of a linkage project between Ball State University (BSU) and Yaroslav-the-Wise Novgorod State University (NovSU) ( and is led by BSU Teachers College and the Center for International Development. This university partnership focuses on diversity in education with a specific emphasis on inclusivity in the American and Russian educational environments in relation to K-12 and post-secondary education; cultural diversity in education; social justice; teacher preparation; teaching and student learning; educational leadership; and educational policies and procedures. The study abroad program is embedded into the EDMU660:Multicultural and Multiethnic Education in American Schools (3 credit) graduate course that will be offered during the full summer session 2016. Taking EDMU660 and participating in its study abroad program offers a unique opportunity to students to gain an extensive understanding of diversity and its meanings within and across different cultural boundaries by employing the US-Russia perspectives and comparative analyses of multicultural education. This opportunity arises during a most historical moment in the Russian educational system aimed at integrating students with disability into general education. A two-week study abroad program in Russia will be hosted by NovSU. Experiential learning will take place in and out of classroom settings, e.g., visiting K-12 schools and classrooms, interacting with faculty and students at NovSU. NovSU is located in Vliky Novgorod ( Veliky Novgorod, one of Russia’s oldest cities, was founded in 862. Cultural excursions in Veliky Novgorod and to Saint Petersburg will be provided.
