The college has made the difficult decision to suspend the fall 2021 study abroad programs. While the global Covid-19 pandemic appears to be improving, the virus is still quite prevalent in many areas of the world. The United States Department of State recently raised the travel advisories for most countries to a level 4 (Do Not Travel).
We know that the opportunity to study abroad is a transformative experience, however the health and safety of our students is always a priority. We hope to be able to resume these opportunities in the spring 2022 semester when it is safer for international travel and individuals will be able to have the best experience possible.
The Center for International Education is working to accommodate students’ study abroad plans in future semesters if possible. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Bennie Williams, assistant dean of students, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Brian Smith, director of Study Abroad & International Student Programs, at email@example.com.
