Revision Update

In the winter of 2020/2021, The Joint Task Force on Education Abroad Health, Safety, and Security convened by The Forum on Education Abroad and NAFSA: Association of International Educators to review and update Responsible Study Abroad: Good Practices for Health and Safety (2002) by a previous inter-organizational task force on safety and responsibility in study abroad. The goal of the Joint Task Force was to outline basic expectations for health, safety, and security in education abroad that could be easily understood by a variety of audiences, from participants to policymakers.
