Health & Safety

Students' health and safety abroad is our number one priority. We take very seriously the role of preparing students through pre-departure orientations here in Boulder, extensive resources guides, contact with our education abroad partner organizations and on-site staff abroad. While abroad, students will have access to on-site staff for assistance as well as our 24-hour emergency telephone. Note that staff in the Education Abroad office monitor updates on health and safety issues around the world that are issued by the U.S. Department of State and the Overseas Security Advisory Council. Note, too, that CU Boulder does not approve participation on programs in countries where the U.S. Department of State has issued a Travel Warning. Although most trips abroad are trouble-free, being prepared will go a long way in avoiding the possibility of serious trouble.
