Identity, Diversity & Inclusion

Education Abroad is proud of our diverse community of Terps Abroad and wants to celebrate and support the many identities of our students. We recognize that your social identity/ies can influence, impact or be impacted by a study abroad experience and believe that it’s important to give careful consideration to these topics ahead of time.

To help you along, we encourage you to visit the pages linked below that include resources and questions for you to consider as you plan for your study abroad experience. As always, we invite you to speak with your Education Abroad Advisor about these and other topics - we are here to help!
