Students from the College of William and Mary, a historically Black college in Virginia, have joined a study abroad program at the University of Pittsburgh.
The program, called “Cis&Gay&”Cis,” aims to bring more diverse students together to engage in study abroad.
It’s one of several LGBT-inclusive study abroad programs across the U: a recent report from the American Association of University Women said LGBT students are three times more likely to study abroad than their straight peers.
While the LGBT community is not the only group that is studying abroad, it’s been an especially popular choice for students in the past few years.
Students from other minority and racial groups have also taken part in such programs.
The study abroad at William and Marwina College, which is the oldest college in the United States, is part of a larger push by colleges across the country to include more LGBT-friendly student experiences in their student life.
The U.K.’s University of Warwick and the University at Albany both have LGBT-focused study abroad experiences.
At Warwick, LGBTQ students will receive a welcome package during the first two weeks of the program.
At Albany, the LGBT campus is slated to receive the same welcome package that is offered at other LGBT colleges.”
We think it’s great to be able to bring these students together in a place where they feel welcomed, where they can have the opportunity to learn together, where there are opportunities for them to be out and proud of who they are and what they believe in,” said Ben White, vice president of communications for Warwick.
At the University, students will have the option of taking a yearlong orientation at the university campus, or attending a four-week orientation at home.
While there are no gender-specific programs for LGBTQ students, students can attend a “sexual orientation orientation” orientation session to meet other students who may be interested in their identity.
At both schools, LGBT students will participate in activities to help them discover and be open about their sexuality and gender identity, including mentoring, social events, networking and even volunteering.
White said Warwick students will also receive information about how to navigate campus policies that discriminate against LGBT students.”
It’s a really good place to start in the world of LGBTQ education because they have this really inclusive campus that really understands that you can be LGBTQ and not necessarily fit in,” he said.
The University of Pennsylvania has offered a similar LGBT orientation program for students for years.
In 2015, the school began offering orientation classes on campus to ensure that all students were included.
The orientation program is still offered to all students, though it’s not as common as it once was.
White at Penn said the school’s LGBT orientation is more inclusive and focuses on the LGBTQ community’s needs and experiences.
Students at the school are also encouraged to attend orientation events on campus, and are asked to meet up in groups to connect.
White said it’s an opportunity for LGBTQ people to get to know one another and share experiences.”
And I think that’s really good.””
They are asking you for help.
