Religious Resources

DIS is committed to supporting students from all faiths and religions. We recognize that every student has a unique identity, and faith, spirituality, and religion may play an important role in the study abroad experience of our students.

If you have religious practices that may impact your housing, dietary needs, study tour travel, or any other aspect of your time abroad with DIS, please email or call the North American Office at 612-301-7200 to discuss your needs before you go abroad. You are encouraged to contact DIS as early as possible as some religious accommodations, such as study tour travel adjustments, require advanced planning and no accommodation in guaranteed.
