Diversity & Inclusion

BIPOC Support

Race and ethnicity abroad are often perceived differently than in the U.S. While abroad, you may have different experiences with your racial and ethnic identity(ies) than you do at home.

You may experience being in the minority or majority for the first time, encounter different perspectives of what it means to be from the U.S., or have stereotypes (both positive and negative) placed upon you.

While everyone’s experience is different, preparing yourself ahead of time and knowing which resources are available can be helpful.

LGBTQIA+ Support

Understanding how your sexuality or gender expression is perceived in other countries is one of the first steps in preparing for your study abroad experience.

Every country perceives sexuality and gender expression differently and you should think about how your study abroad destination may react to your identity and how freely you’ll be able to express yourself when you’re abroad. While you should not feel pressured to closet yourself while you’re away, it’s important to have a grasp on how your expression can be perceived in a different cultural context.

In order to help prepare you to have the best time while abroad, here are some resources we have gathered to get you started.

Accessibility Support

Students with disabilities successfully attend study abroad programs all over the world each year. If you are a student with any type of disability — physical, learning or mental health — , we encourage you to contact us as early as possible to discuss accommodations and support. Planning ahead and communication are important to preparing for your experience abroad.

Please note that the location that you are applying to may have specific accessibility challenges such as uneven terrain, cobblestones, stairs, lack of specialized equipment, and differing attitudes and laws regarding accessibility. You also may find that medications typically prescribed in the U.S. may not be available or legal in your host country. It is important to allow extra time to plan the appropriate arrangements for your time abroad.

However, our team at Spanish Studies Abroad is here to help support you to the best of our ability in arranging necessary accommodations for your study abroad experience. We encourage you to tell your Admissions Advisor if you need any special arrangements.
