California Lutheran University values the dignity of all individuals and the perspectives they bring from personal histories, group identities, and cultural experiences.  We advocate for equity in our policies, practices, and programs, which extends to the Study Abroad Center and the opportunities it provides. The Center is committed to providing equal access and opportunity for all students. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, gender, identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital status, national and ethnic origin or other status or condition.

It is the Center’s intention to create a diverse community of learners and it is committed to continuously encouraging the participation of students from groups typically underrepresented in study abroad.
