Emergency Response Plan
When an emergency incident occurs abroad, SCU Study Abroad will immediately mobilize resources in coordination with the campus, local onsite staff, and faculty, as well as local authorities and emergency organizations. This defines the lines of communication, the scope of support required, the resources needed to assist students abroad, and any coordination with third-party organizations.
The Benefits of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad enriches students’ academic experience. They get to live in interesting places, have many opportunities to visit historically and culturally significant sites, examine artifacts they’ve only read about or seen on TV, and interact with local students and faculty. Many will become students at prestigious universities where they have to adjust and learn to thrive in an academic system that demands independence and initiative.
