Travel Risk Management provides comprehensive risk management features to travelers on university-sponsored international travel.  Students, faculty and staff may register university-sponsored international travel in the system in order to receive pre-departure travel briefings and travel alerts throughout the course of their trip.  This service is supported by software from the Anvil Group.


BU community members and guest students traveling on university-sponsored international travel have access to in-depth pre-departure travel briefings and 24/7/365 emergency alerts for the duration of their trip abroad.  The Travel Risk Management Tools service allows the University to check in with BU travelers abroad to verify their safety in the event of an incident, and provide emergency assistance as needed.

Key Features
