International Risk Management Services

Leading an experience abroad is both a challenging and rewarding experience. Successful and safe international experiences are a result of collaborative efforts between UMD’s various colleges, their respective departments, and the Study Abroad office.

Our staff is available to assist you and your students prepare for an experience abroad. We provide the required risk management support to undergraduate students and faculty as indicated by the UWide Student Travel & Education Abroad Health & Safety policy. Students pay a processing fee to cover these services. Additionally, information about University-wide resources and incident data on safety abroad can be found at GO SAFE.
