Safety & Security Abroad

Goucher College is committed to providing safe study abroad programs for our students. Increased concerns about safety and security have prompted the Office of Global Education to create this website, which includes our Emergency Preparedness Plan and important announcements, as well as resources for students and parents.  Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.

The United States Department of State is also a great resource for safety tips while abroad.  Please refer to their International Travel Safety Information for Students website for more information.

We offer confidential advising for students who have questions and concerns about safety abroad, and encourage students to visit our Diversity in Study Abroad page to learn more about personal identity while abroad.
