Health and Safety
SIT Study Abroad places the highest priority on the health, safety, and security of all students. Through our 80-plus years of running international experiential education programs, we have developed sophisticated proactive and reactive risk management strategies. Our proactive risk management begins with in-country assessments of safety and continues through student orientation and emergency preparedness.
Our reactive risk management strategies include 24/7 on-call availability, emergency/crisis response protocols, and comprehensive student insurance. Our structure also allows for rapid response and adjustment to changing situations. Our University Relations team in partnership with Student Affairs works tirelessly to ensure that any health, safety, or security concerns are quickly and properly relayed to our partner institutions.
