BIPOC Support

CEA CAPA provides, in conjunction with Diversity Abroad, Destination Guides which provide resources and tips for Black/African-American students, Latinx students, Asian American students, and all other students of color.

LGBTQIA+ Support

Through our personalized advising, CEA CAPA takes steps to understand the needs of a diversity of student identities like the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to diversity and identity training, CEA CAPA leadership engage in continuous department level project work to identify and revise policies and practices using the appropriate Justice, Equity, Diversity or Inclusion lens as a frame to reduce bias and barriers that impact students, faculty, and staff. CEA CAPA is intentional in elevating diverse student voices and providing a platform for a broad array of identities to share their experiences abroad. The CEA CAPA World Blog promotes stories and personal experiences from the perspectives of diverse student bloggers and vloggers.

Neurodivergent Support

CEA CAPA is willing and able to assist students with learning disabilities and physical disabilities. Students are requested to disclose disabilities through the application health forms as part of their application and in discussion with their application advisor or program manager. The earlier CEA CAPA is made aware of learning or physical disabilities the better we can work with the student, institution, and overseas team to tailor an Individualized Education Program if necessary to support the student.



CEA CAPA makes a conscious effort to create study abroad experiences that leave a positive impact on host communities. Each location implements a variety of strategies to support the local community and promote sustainability. Examples include:

Use of recycling bins in Study Center locations and in CEA CAPA housing

Signage in CEA CAPA housing urging students to limit water and electricity usage

Students are provided with instructions for acquiring transportation passes to promote use of public transportation rather than taxis

A Year on the Other Side of the Hemisphere

I chose to study in Chile because I wanted to have an experience full of a life at the beach, constant outdoor adventure, laid back Latin culture and be able to travel from the Patagonia mountains to the dressiest desert in the world all in the same country. Chile is an amazing country, It feels like my second home. The people are extremely friendly and aways offer a hand of help. Most things don’t cost very much so you able to do more things for the value of your money. The program director was amazing for CEA in Chile. She always helped us out so much and made sure everything was the best it could be. I loved my university because the professor wanted us to travel and when we had class I learned so many interesting things about Latin American in a whole new perspective. I 100 percent recommend going to study in Chile. I extended my program for a year because I didn’t want to leave! You will fall in love with the country and not want to leave. Who wouldn’t want to study in a place you can ski and surf in the same day?

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I would change is if there were more options for courses/classes available but, everything else is amazing!
