It is important that all travelers become familiar with the resources available to respond to an emergency or crisis.
As part of the comprehensive support services offered to University travelers and international program participants, the Global Safety & Security office works with other University offices, local, state and national government authorities, and International SOS, a private service, to respond to emergencies that might affect you.
