Workshop for faculty & staff - Taking Students Abroad: Legal and Risk Management Issues Involving International Programs


Contributed by Rachel Gould

If you are a faculty or staff member who has an interest in taking students abroad, you are invited to attend an important workshop.  The Office of International Programs will be co-hosting, together with our affiliate IES Abroad (the Institute for the International Education of Students), a workshop entitled "Taking Students Abroad: Legal and Risk Management Issues Involving International Programs" on April 11, 2013

Risk management and legal issues represent an area that is becoming ever more important in study abroad programming, and something that we don't always think about first when envisioning the exciting educational opportunities we can create for students abroad.  This workshop will provide a deeper understanding of the legal and risk management issues that need to be considered when traveling abroad with students.

Please note that this workshop is different from those routinely offered by the Office of International Programs (OIP) on short-term study abroad program development, and therefore faculty who have already attended the workshop lead by OIP are encouraged to participate and will find new information presented here.
