Identity-Based Resources

In an effort to increase access to study abroad for all Wofford students and to better prepare students for their experience overseas, the Office of International Programs and the Office for Civil Rights, Compliance and Community Initiatives have compiled lists of external resources and questions to review for students from historically underrepresented identities as they consider studying abroad.

The Office of International Programs complies with the Forum on Education Abroad's Standards of Good Practice, as well as advancing Wofford College's Strategic Vision and diversity initiatives.
