MISTI strives to foster a diverse and inclusive community – on campus and abroad. What makes you YOU? As you plan your time abroad consider the various facets of your identity and how that could influence the challenges you may face in a new culture as well as the new opportunities that may surprise you.
Going abroad is an exhilarating and transformative experience. There can be cultural, legal, political, religious, economic, and social contexts that may impact your experience. MISTI managers can provide you with further country-specific information. Please discuss specific questions or concerns with the MISTI staff. There are also other MIT offices and resources that can assist. Please visit the MIT ICEO website for a full list of programs, offices, staff, and other diversity resources at MIT.
MISTI is a member of the Diversity Abroad Network and you may wish to watch their student-centered Pre-Departure Video that explores topics of identity as they relate to the education abroad experience.
