Diversity and Identity Abroad
Being YOU Abroad
Preparing to study abroad includes reflection on your various roles and identities as a person and as a traveler. Take time to learn about the host country and city where you will study abroad, including how various parts of your identity may be perceived in this new cultural context. Resources such as blog posts from Creighton University students can support you in your exploration.
Consider the identities below, even if you do not hold all of them, so that you may navigate how aspects of your identity and your friends' identities might be perceived and received abroad.
Accessibility & Mental Health
Physical disabilities, mental health accommodations, learning accommodations
Students seeking to connect with their family or ancestral home country or cultural community
Students who identify as a member of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, genderqueer, queer, intersex, asexual, and ally community
