Know Your Support Network
Global Programs seeks to provide travelers with as much support as possible in order to facilitate the healthy, safe, and secure operations of global activities; oversees all University international policies, support, and coordination; and leads overseas emergency response.
We’ll help you access the information and resources offered by many other offices around campus that can support your international activity. For example:
|Your Unit/Department||Colleagues within your department or school play an important role in planning safe travel and responding to emergencies.|
|Risk Management||Insurance, workers compensation, liability, and emergency travel assistance.|
|Study Abroad||Experienced staff in Boston and abroad and policies for safe travel and emergency planning.|
|Travel Services||Travel arrangements, expenses, reimbursement, and emergency contact assistance.|
|Office of the General Counsel||Support for all legal aspects of overseas operations.|
|Research Compliance||Integrated support for research activities.|
|Export Control||Regulations on the transfer of technology and information to foreign countries.|
|Human Resources||Health insurance for faculty and staff residing or traveling abroad.|
|BU Police||Crime prevention, reporting, and community-safety planning.|
|Environmental Health & Safety||Facility and laboratory safety, emergency response planning.|
Now that you’ve identified the team that you can turn to for support, it is time to assess the risks you may face at your destination.
