Hosted by three Dalhousie Graduate Students in International Development Studies, this panel will discuss some of the unexpected challenges and difficulties students may face in international research, studies, or work. Panelists are students, staff, and faculty familiar with these challenges. Topics will include gender and sexual diversity, communication barriers, racism and privilege, academic and administrative support, and mental health. This panel will be of interest to domestic undergraduate and graduate students anticipating studies or internships abroad, as well as international students living in here.
