The Office of International Education will hold its Fall 2018 Education Abroad Risk Management Workshops on October 11 from 1pm-5pm and October 22 from 1pm-5pm at the University Health Center. Each session will be held in Conference Room A. Participation is required for all new UGA Education Abroad program directors, including: instructional staff, teaching assistants, and/or program support staff who may be responsible for students in any capacity while abroad. Education Abroad program representatives who have previously attended a workshop prior to the Fall 2017 workshops are required to attend as university policies and procedures regarding Education Abroad programs have since been updated. This session is also recommended for administrative program support staff, as well as potential directors of future study abroad programs. The workshop includes a review of the Education Abroad Risk Management Emergency Response Protocol and expectations for program directors and staff abroad. Campus-wide representatives will also present on legal issues, travel safety, student conduct/judicial programs, creating safe spaces for diverse program participants, as well as mental health and medical issues while abroad.
