PartnersCampus Goiânia is the first of our Brazilian student chapters and during its creation, the students thought a lot about what their chapter should focus on. They agreed that their desire was not to change the world, but rather to empower individuals to help themselves. Since then, the chapter has been working with cis and transgender women, refugees, immigrants, and ESL students.
Overworked, over-caffeinated, and with little opportunity to fit elective courses in their schedules, students studying STEM might not seem like a good fit for study abroad programs. As a result of this assumption, STEM students have been historically underrepresented among students who choose to travel abroad.
