Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Guide

Boston University Study Abroad seeks to build and sustain programs that make every student, whether from Boston University or elsewhere, feel prepared, welcomed, supported, empowered and valued throughout their experience.

Studying in a new location, either abroad or elsewhere within the U.S., opens a window to diverse and different practices, values, points of view, and ways of life. Similarly, our students embody a wide range of identities that can affect their experiences while on a study abroad program. BU Study Abroad is committed to preparing all students to adapt and thrive in their new surroundings and ensuring that all our programs are safe, welcoming, and accessible regardless of ability, gender, sexual orientation, race or ethnicity, economic status, nationality, religion, or any intersection of these identities.

These pages provide resources as you are navigating your study abroad options to help you reflect on what your study abroad experience might look like. We encourage you to be in touch with our office if there is any additional information that would be helpful for you as you plan your journey. We look forward to supporting and empowering you throughout your study abroad experience.
