May 4, 2022

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in the United States, and we've been taking time to reflect on our AAPI friends', colleagues', and students' experiences, both here and abroad. We are as determined as ever to do our part and give our students the resources they need to be 100% themselves abroad.

This time last year, we witnessed a spike in hate crimes against Asian Americans. A year on, many additional attacks on Asian Americans have continued. At IES Abroad we will continue to lift up those voices that discrimination tries to silence, and to support our colleagues, students, partners, and friends as best we can.

This month, we will further amplify the voices of AAPI students and staff, and believe that sharing their stories and their voices not only shines a light on important perspectives—but expands our world, too.

If you're interested in learning more on how to help stop hate-based harassment and support the local AAPI community, consider joining trainings and accessing local resources available to you, too!

At IES Abroad, we believe that studying and interning abroad is not just for a specific type of student; it's for everyone. Our Social Identity resources cover it all—whether you have a food allergyanxiety, or a tight budget. Maybe you're the first family member to go to college(and abroad), a member of the LGBTQ+ community, an international student, or someone looking to practice your religion abroad (or maybe all of the above!).  How will study abroad expand your world? We can't wait to find out.
