By going abroad, students may find themselves in unfamiliar, challenging, and thought-provoking situations. Attitudes and perceptions of diversity issues will vary from country to country and may be very different than those in the U.S. It is important to research the host culture to learn about common perceptions, social and historical viewpoints, tolerance, and to identify available support systems. Here are some resources that may be helpful as NC State students plan and prepare for study abroad.
As a sign of our commitment, NC State is a proud member of Diversity Abroad, which provides many resources for our students.
