Know a student traveling abroad? While staff and faculty are not affected by the university’s requirements around Safety Abroad, it is good for staff and faculty working with students to be aware of the requirements and how the university community can work together to support students in having a safe experience abroad.
What is an Activity Sponsor?
All activities are connected to a university unit, department or faculty member that has oversight over the activity. These units, departments or faculty members are referred to as activity sponsors in safety abroad.
Activity Sponsors can be:
- Academic supervisors directly responsible for student field research
- Staff administering student exchange, course for credit programs and internship opportunities
- Anyone who sanctions or financially contributes to student-organized extracurricular activities
