    The ABCs of Global Learning for ABC Students

    During this session, we will explore what it's like to experience Blackness in different cultural contexts through the lived experiences of UC ABC (African, African-American, Afro-Latine, Black, or Caribbean) global learning alumni who studied or interned in different parts of the world.

    We will tackle important issues around race and identity abroad and away, considerations in different cultural regions, how to navigate your transition to a new culture, and what resources you can use to prepare and set expectations for success.

    Don't miss out on this informative and eye-opening opportunity to have a conversation about the ABC student experience in global learning.
