Description
The Office of Global Engagement will hold its Spring 2019 Global Education Risk Management Workshops on February 7 and February 13 from 1-5 p.m. at the University Health Center. Each session will be held in Conference Room A. Participation is required for all new UGA Global Education program directors, including: instructional staff, teaching assistants, and/or program support staff who may be responsible for students in any capacity while abroad. Global Education program representatives must participate in a Risk Management Workshop on an annual basis, since programs have since been updated. If you have previously participated in a Risk Management Workshop and would like to view the shortened returner version of the workshop, please contact Jacob Moore at moore17@uga.edu. 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 Global Education 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.
