Identities and Diversity Abroad

As you explore your study abroad program options and settings, we encourage you to also familiarize yourself with a series of considerations that will impact your experiences abroad, both in terms of differences and in terms of new opportunities for connections. The following information highlights resources here at OSU as well as other U.S. based campuses and the broader global community.

Just as we navigate everyday life with our multiple identities here in the U.S., studying abroad involves navigating diversity in new environments, each with its own histories, rules (both written and unwritten), and perspectives (individual and collective). In recognition of the intersectionality of identities, we’re listing many of our OSU resources and communities here:
