The Joint Committee on the Research Environment (JCORE) recently recommended safety and security practices that will ultimately require institutions to “maintain international travel policies for faculty and staff” going abroad. Building a travel risk management program for universities and higher education institutions requires taking a holistic view of risk and mitigation. Processes and procedures for a mature travel risk management program include preregistration requirements, record-keeping considerations, briefing and communication, electronic device security, and more. Learn how one university built its travel risk management program, identifying potential threats, incorporating existing technology to gain intelligence, and ensuring students and staff receive the assistance they need to stay safe, wherever they are.
