We continuously monitor the situation in each of our locations, using every resource at our fingertips—overseas staff, contacts in the field, a wide array of news sources, local consulates, and the US Department of State. In some locations, we also maintain person-to-person contact with the US Embassy.
We use this information to keep students, parents, and partners informed about safety matters on our News & Alerts page. And when warranted, we take prompt action, like program relocation or evacuation. If the US Department of State recommends evacuation for any location, it is our policy to cancel the program immediately and bring students home.
