Being a Minority Student Abroad

Students belonging to a minority group should be conscious that additional efforts may be needed to adjust to the host culture. Be aware, too, that what may appear to be discriminatory or racist statements, questions, or manifestations may be based on insufficient knowledge or simple curiosity due to lack of exposure to other ethnic minorities. Personnel from the School Abroad office are available to help students identify, understand, and respond to doubts, questions, or specific incidents.
