WPI encourages its students, faculty and staff to pursue academic opportunities around the world. All travel, regardless of destination, brings a certain level of inherent risk.To help mitigate risk for our global travelers, WPI regularly monitors world health, safety and security events using a variety of assessment sources, including taking input from the U.S. Department of State (DOS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)International SOS, WPI faculty and staff regional experts, among other reputable oversight agencies.

Traveling abroad requires increased caution and additional preparation. The Associate Director, Global Risk Management in the Global Experience Office is committed to supporting your health and safety while abroad. Provided on these pages are general health and safety guidelines, information on WPI's medical and security assistance provider, International SOS, and information on how to register your international travel, a requirement for all WPI students, faculty and staff participating in WPI-sponsored international travel.
