Diversity and inclusion abroad
The Glavin Office of International Education encourages students of all backgrounds to participate in an education abroad experience, in hopes that the diversity among participants in our Education Abroad programs reflects the rich diversity of our campus.
Much like many students experience an identity shift when they first arrive at Babson, you may experience a shift in your identity when you go abroad and find yourself in a new cultural context. Understanding how these identity shifts can affect your education abroad experience and engaging with the new and different ways that identity is constructed across cultures, can go a long way toward better understanding yourself as well as the new culture in which you will be living.
The Glavin Office has resources available on Diversity and Inclusion, including pages dedicated to learning and mobility access abroad, multicultural students abroad, religion and spirituality abroad, women abroad, athletes abroad, and LGBTQ+ students abroad.
You are still a Babson student while you are abroad, and all of Babson’s resources are still available to you no matter where you are studying from. Access more resources related to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Babson.
