Cultural perceptions of race and ethnicity vary significantly around the world. Racial and ethnic identities abroad are important topics to research when deciding where to travel and study abroad. Syracuse Abroad encourages you to learn about the cultural differences, including norms, stereotypes and colloquialisms, in your host country, city and every subsequent place you choose to explore.
