Update on Ukraine – March 1, 2022
UCI continues to actively monitor the evolving situation in Ukraine and eastern Europe. We remain in close communications with the UC Office of the President, UCEAP and colleagues throughout the UC system, as well as government and local contacts. At this time, no UCI programs outside Ukraine have been canceled or suspended as a result of the Russian military invasion of Ukraine or worldwide responses to the ongoing military action in Ukraine.
As of Friday, February 26, The University of California Office of the President is directing all members of the UC community to avoid all travel to Ukraine at this time. Additionally, travel to neighboring countries should be carefully evaluated. In mid February, the U.S. State Department revised its travel advisory to U.S. citizens in Ukraine, Crimea, or Donetsk and Luhansk.

For UCI Students: All UCI students involved in an international activity that takes place “anywhere outside of the geographic borders of the United
States” are required to complete a risk assessment and register their travel for their Independent International Activity. Students should begin the process here: https://studyabroad.uci.edu/about/independent-international-activities/
