The Global Learning Hub is committed to promoting access to study, work, intern and volunteer opportunities for students of color. Participation in global learning opportunities can be a great way to explore a passion, enhance your resume and connect with global communities. It can also be an opportunity to explore how people of color are treated in varying or similar global learning environments.
While many students of color study, work, intern and volunteer without incident, perceptions of your identity may be different based on the global learning environment you are entering. You may experience unexpected or more intense instances of discrimination. Understanding your global learning environment’s cultural and social climate can better prepare you for such experiences and provide you with appropriate response strategies.
The Global Learning Hub is committed to working with the Cross Cultural Center to provide resources and support for students of color participating in global learning opportunities. The following resources may also be helpful:
