High Impact Education Abroad Experiences
Overall, education abroad experiences are categorized as High Impact Practices within universities, but not all education abroad programs exhibit the required characteristics of such practices. At CBB, we infuse our programs with the necessary characteristics to truly make it a high-impact practice. We utilize an intercultural competency perspective to establish trust. With trust in our team, we are better able to engage faculty and students in transformative culturally-immersive virtual or in-person experiences.
Engaging Underrepresented Students
At CBB we specialize in education abroad programs targeting underrepresented student. We place emphasis on the importance of cultural/ethnic identities in gaining a global/cross-cultural perspective. We leverage the complex identities of all students by acknowledging and embracing them from a position of empowerment; we frame it as a strength rather than a deficit.
Increasing Program Leaders’ Capacity
African countries are considered non-traditional destinations within study abroad. This often means that faculty and program directors feel it is daunting to plan for African destinations. CBB, in collaboration with our Partner Companies, offers comprehensive reliable and professional services that ensure smooth planning and on-the-ground experiences for those ready to diversify their education abroad (virtual or in-person) program offerings.

Culture Beyond Boarders
Our logo is the Adinkra symbol called BOA ME NA ME MMOA WO (help me and let me help you). This symbol represents cooperation and interdependence, which we believe are the attributes needed for a globalized world to thrive. Cross-cultural collaboration, mutual understanding, cooperation, and interdependence are pillars on which we can hope for a better future.
To possess a culture that is beyond any particular border is to be an interculturalist; it means you belong to the global village. Embracing, navigating, and integrating our differences is the only way to thrive in a globalized world. CBB is here to usher you into such a future!
