From the classroom to the field ... and back again. Safely.

UW-Madison's International Safety and Security Bulletin Board

Safe international travel begins at home—there is no substitute for sound planning before you leave. 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.  We will add and update information and links about important events and actions that impact the international environment as well as work to present information in an accessible manner–both materially and aesthetically!  This website is our bulletin board, a link to you that hopefully supports the needs of the UW-Madison community.

The University International Travel Resources, Guidelines and Policies (“Travel Policy”) expresses  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 or telephone. 608-890-2446.
