Multicultural Students

Students with multicultural identities will have unique opportunities and challenges during their off-campus study experience(s).  The IOS Office recognizes and honors that many students may face unique familial, financial, and/or personal barriers in the off-campus study process.  The IOS Office strives to remove as many barriers as possible in the application, advising, participation, and re-entry processes.  We strongly encourage all students who are interested in off-campus study to meet with an IOS Advisor or a staff member in the Taylor Center for Equity and Inclusion Office.
