As study abroad opportunities continue to expand, how can international education administrators make the study abroad experience accessible, safe, and meaningful for transgender and gender non-conforming identified students? How does race and sexual identity intersect with a trans* identity? During this session, we’ll explore methods for engaging trans* students seeking to go abroad, with an emphasis on housing accommodations, health/medical needs, and safety. Using theory, case studies, and personal narratives from transgender and gender non-conforming students, we’ll offer inclusive and transferable implementation practices you can use, from marketing/application to pre-departure, exchange, and re-entry.
