Sale price$399.00


Create a Proactive and Agile Contingency Plan to Protect Your Students, Faculty and Institution

Covid-19 has forever changed institutions' travel abroad programs. To mitigate risk and institutional liabilities, institutions now face new challenges, including:

  • Increased financial need to support programs
  • Enhanced safety requirements
  • Evolving risk factors
  • Revised contingency plans/policies that reflect these new risk factors.

Our expert presenter will help you and your colleagues better understand the impact the global pandemic has had and the new questions and considerations for international travel and risk management mitigation policies that need to be in place to protect your students, staff and institution.

Preparation and Planning are Essential

The pandemic has magnified the importance of mobility and engagement globally and should be a priority for institutions once travel is safe. Institutions and global partners will need to ensure appropriate planning is in place to prevent and safeguard against legal gaps, as well as that key risk management strategies are implemented so lawsuits and tragedies can be avoided.

Topics Covered

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Initiate the critical conversations with key stakeholders to create a proactive and agile contingency plan for your study abroad programs — learn what resources you need to improve your current programs so you can keep your students, and your institution, safe from risk and legal exposure.
  • Evaluate the essential resources needed to appropriately manage risk — ensure the institution, travelers and programs have enough monetary resources allocated to support the potential delays and/or extensions of travel plans, testing/quarantine requirements, technology needs and basic need supplies. Do not get caught off guard and scrambling to respond!
  • Incorporate best practices for responding to crises and emergencies abroad to create effective study abroad programs — minimize your institutional risk and safeguard against legal gaps and put key risk management strategies in place so you can avoid a lawsuit.
  • Outline a strategically tiered approach to return to travel abroad — consider the evolving factors that may impact your program to develop response protocols that protect your students, staff, and institution from risk.
  • Foster partnerships with global organizations and overseas locations that uphold your institution’s vision, educational mission, and safety goals to protect your global travelers.
