Global Safety: A Case Study in Using Technology to Enhance Student Safety and Inform Decision-Making

Since the Virginia Tech shootings, universities have invested in systems and processes that help keep students and faculty safe and informed – both in times of crisis and as part of everyday life. Study abroad providers have similar responsibilities with a greater challenge – our students travel from a variety of locations across continents and time zones, with varying start and end dates. Join us for a look at CIEE’s approach; we’ll show how new technologies can provide a framework for a comprehensive health, safety, and security strategy and create valuable data to inform decisions and enhance student safety and staff preparedness.
