Georgia State University study abroad students reflect the diversity of students attending GSU. As such, the Study Abroad Programs Office recognizes that students often self-identify in many different ways and choose which facets of themselves to share (or not to share) while studying abroad. You may also find that how you self-identify is not how you’re identified abroad. We’ve collected some links to resources below for students seeking support. Of course, these resources are just a jumping off point. Please drop by the Study Abroad Programs Office during open advising hours (9 AM – noon & 1 – 5 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays) to speak with an advisor to discuss any concerns you may have prior to studying abroad.
I’ve you’d like to share a story or resource with the Study Abroad Programs Office that you think would help other students, please email us at [email protected]!
