Commission for Global Dimensions of Student Development
Tuesday, 6 August 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Study abroad in higher education in the United States has grown steadily in recent years. While the numbers have increased, access to study abroad resources for students of diverse identities has not necessarily grown with them, and universities may not offer explicit support in advising these students through the study abroad process. In this webinar, participants will learn how student affairs professionals can support LGBTQ+ students through the process of studying abroad. They will also gain an understanding of the context of study abroad advising in US higher education, especially related to diverse student identities. Finally, we will share resources for LGBTQ+ students studying abroad.
