As a student of color, you may have specific questions and concerns about studying abroad. We are here to help you through the process and provide resources and information related to how the specifics of your identity might relate to the program you choose. PCC Multicultural Centers are also here to help.
Research consistently shows that students who study abroad achieve higher GPAs and have higher rates of degree completion than their peers. Studying abroad gives you unparalleled opportunities to develop transferable skills that will help you professionally and encourage you to grow personally.
