We believe that everyone should have equal access to study abroad. Our office has a strong interest in increasing diversity amongst study abroad participants. Below are some resources for navigating a variety of different identity factors abroad. We encourage students to review these resources and to work with us in identifying and preparing for potential challenges they might experience before, during, and after studying abroad.
Some good overall resources include:
IES Abroad Diversity Resources
Michigan State Identity Resources
