January 02, 2019 Download pdf


The Education Abroad Health and Safety Subcommittee led by Jason Hope, University of Kentucky, and Dan Hart, Arizona State University, compiled five sample crisis response plans used by different universities. This library is meant to provide options/outlines for responding to an education abroad emergency.

Strategies for how to respond and manage an unforeseen event when a student is abroad will allow an EA office to have procedures in place before an emergency occurs. Preparation and creation of such a plan ensures that the response is timely, mindful of safety issues, adheres to university policies, provides contact information for campus staff that should be part of immediate communication, and assists the student in crisis.
