Welcome to the
University of Wisconsin-Madison
International Travel site!

These pages represent the work of the University International Travel Committee (UITC) and International Safety and Security Director (ISSD).  The resources, links and information presented here are for your use.  It is a growing site that is in the initial stages of life.  Check back often to see our progress as we work to provide you with a site that is a true resource to UW-Madison.

Taking the classroom to the field … international learning opportunities enhance the UW-Madison experience!

We hope you find all of the information you need related to international travel.  In an effort to serve the UW-Madison community, this site will be revised and updated often to reflect dynamic conditions abroad.  In the near future, we will add quick-links to information about important events and actions that impact the international environment as well as improve the site’s presentation–both materially and aesthetically!  This website is our link to you and hopefully will become a site that meets the needs of the UW-Madison community.

The University International Travel Resources, Guidelines and Policies (“Travel Policy”) articulates UW-Madison’s dedication to the vibrant opportunities that grow from international education, research and outreach.  This policy attempts to mitigate risk present in many parts of the world with reasonable consideration for planned travel to destinations where there is heightened risk. If you are considering travel to a location that is under a U.S. Department of State or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Travel  Warning, then please read the Travel Policy in its entirety.  The policy is not a constraint on your plans, but instead is a process that describes the university’s interest in ensuring your safety and security in the international environment.  The UITC is very sincerely an enthusiastic partner in helping you achieve your goals abroad.

If you are in need of additional information or have questions about this site or the University International Travel Policy and Guidelines, please feel free to contact Ron Machoian, the UW-Madison ISSD, directly at ronald.machoian@wisc.edu or tel. 608-890-2446.
