Health and Safety

The UNI Study Abroad Center works closely with UNI Campus Police, national organizations, and our partners overseas to make sure that our students, faculty. and staff are informed so they can be proactive and handle any situation while on campus and traveling internationally.

The UNI Study Abroad Center receives updates and closely monitors events overseas by working closely with the US State Department, the World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control.

Political situations worldwide are closely monitored and the office strives to remain in close contact with students abroad to alert them of any potential threat to their health and safety.

The below resources provide students the opportunity to be informed on health and safety concerns and monitor events as well.


The U.S. Department of State has issued a worldwide caution for U.S. citizen traveling internationally. View additional details on the Worldwide Caution: Travel Health and Safety; Terrorism; Political Violence on OSAC's website.
