Race & Ethnicity
Views on race and ethnicity vary among cultures. It is important to begin to understand how race and ethnicity are perceived in your host country before you depart. The resources at Carleton, on-line, and in print can help you develop your knowledge and awareness.
The Office of Intercultural Life staff is available to talk to students individually about concerns related to race and ethnicity and off-campus study. Contact the office x4014 for an appointment or just stop by.
