RISK MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
We are working closely with our partners around the world to ensure that communication is flowing between our staff, their staff, and our participants. Our goal is to ensure that students are taking measures to protect themselves, and that the academic program continues as smoothly as possible.
Our Risk Management Team is meeting twice a day and has more than 50 years of combined experience in this area. We are continuously monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and staying current on all U.S. State Department and CDC news. Our International Operations Management Team is in constant touch with our current and future participants, emergency contacts, and home institutions.
Our international university partners are closely monitoring local situations closely and taking all necessary measures to ensure campus communities are as protected as possible.
We want our students to stay safe and also to be able to have the rich cultural and academic experience that they have worked so hard to have. If the U.S. or country governments do not recommend the cancellation of programming, we will not either. We also understand that universities, families and students have their own risk thresholds and may make other decisions. In these instances, we will work with each individual case to see how we can best accommodate these needs.
CIS Abroad is closely monitoring the recommendations of the U.S. State Department, the CDC, and equivalent international organizations.
