Safety Abroad Office
The Safety Abroad Office offers training on logistics, safety and cultural issues that you may face during your time abroad. While most students go abroad without incident, travelling overseas has its risks. Whether you are travelling to a low-risk or high-risk destination, the Safety Abroad Office provides in-depth pre-departure training for students going abroad. We offer preparation for cross-cultural encounters, personal safety, women's-only travel and LGBTQ travel.
While you are abroad we continue to keep an eye out for your safety — CIE consults the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade website on a daily basis to check country updates and monitor international news.

Faculty and Staff: Our office is available for consultation if you are looking to send students abroad. We can help you navigate the University's Safety Abroad Guidelines, assist with risk assessments and offer pre-departure training for your students. For more information please contact email@example.com.
Emergency assistance is available to students participating in University sponsored activities. Participants are required to register with our online database in advance of travel. In the event of an emergency, you can contact us through the campus police. For more information about our emergency assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safety is not necessarily about knowing site-specific details for each place you travel to. Safety is about knowing the right questions to ask and what to be aware of. Come to our sessions and discover the ins and outs of travelling abroad.
