Diversity and Identity Abroad

Clayton State University study abroad students reflect the diversity of students attending Clayton State. As such, the Study Abroad Office recognizes that students often self-identify in many different ways and choose which facets of themselves to share (or not to share) while studying abroad. You may also find that how you self-identify is not how you are identified abroad. We’ve collected some links to resource below for students seeking support. Of course, these resources are just recommendations. Please feel free to drop by our office during our semester walk-in hours (these change by the semester) to speak with an advisor to discuss any concerns you may have prior to studying abroad.


Our office is always looking at ways to learn, grow, incorporate, and enhance diversity and identity at Clayton Stat especially in relation to study abroad programing.  If you would like to share a story, resource, or ideas with the Study Abroad Office that you think would help other students, please email us at

The Study Abroad Office, in consultation with the Disability Resources Center (DRC), is committed to promoting equal education opportunities and providing a welcoming academic, physical and social environment for students with disabilities at CSU and abroad. The Study Abroad Office is committed to working with students to find the right program based on individual student interests and needs, while at the same time maintaining confidentiality. As students are narrowing down their program options, they should take into consideration academics, housing, and access to health care and transportation, among others. If you are a student that meets or requires these resources and/or assistance, please contact the Disability Resources Center, to assist with consultation and support with the Study Abroad Office.
