Prioritizing Health, Safety & Security: Hosting American Students

Recent events have further illuminated the need to prioritize health, safety and security in international exchange program development, implementation and management for student mobility. Leaders in international education share lessons learned and offer practical tips on risk assessments, emergency plans and protocols. How can health, safety and security needs of international education programs be embedded within partner relations and institutional strategic plans to ensure a robust return to study abroad?

This webinar is part of the "Internationalization of Higher Education in the COVID-19 Era" series jointly organized by the Department of State’s USA Study Abroad branch, the Fulbright Finland Foundation, and the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA). These activities support U.S. study abroad and are funded  by the U.S. Government through a Study Abroad Engagement Grant from USA Study Abroad within the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State.

Guest Speakers

  • Andrea Bordeau, Global Safety and Security Manager, Vanderbilt University
