Student Handbook - Discrimination Issues Abroad

ISEP does not tolerate discrimination on the part of its member institutions or participants; however, racial, sexual, and religious prejudice does exist in many countries. When dealing with such issues, keep your own cultural assumptions in mind before jumping to conclusions. It is possible that actions or questions that upset you may simply reflect people’s curiosity about you. Also, remember that you have choices in how to deal with these issues. Should extreme incidents arise, speak to your host ISEP Coordinator. If this does not resolve the issue, contact ISEP-Central.
