Western has adopted a new Safety Abroad policy designed to help ensure safe experiences for Western undergraduate and graduate students who travel internationally as part of a university activity.
The policy and its accompanying procedures are meant to offer assistance in managing the risks associated with University-sanctioned international programs and activities and to provide processes to undertake the following:
a) Approval of student international travel for University-sanctioned activities and programs
b) Risk assessment of travel locations, regions and/or countries
c) Centralized and accessible risk management resources to enable University travellers to be informed of, and manage the risks associated with, travelling abroad
The policy and procedures are effective immediately. The full policy is available on the University Secretariat website here.
