Viruses, fires and violent protests around the world serve as a visceral reminder that we all must work together to ensure the health and safety of our students when they participate in UCI affiliated activities outside the United States. UCI has new support for faculty and staff who manage programs that include travel and activities abroad with students. Program leaders should become familiar with the new Student International Activities Policy and Procedure. As part of this procedure, UCI sponsoring units that wish to conduct Student International Activities should consult with the Study Abroad Center early in the planning stages. Approving a proposal may take two months or more depending on program readiness.
Please note this new policy and procedure does not affect international activities that do not involve students. Also, the University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) is governed by a different policy available through UCEAP.
For questions or to start a proposal, contact Jeanne d’Arc Gomis (link to email@example.com) at the Study Abroad Center.
