The well-being of UT students, faculty and staff is the primary concern of the Global Risk and Safety unit in the International Office.
In support of the mission and core values of the University of Texas at Austin, we monitor worldwide travel conditions, compile and disseminate safety resources to assist students, faculty and staff on official university travel.
We also lead UT’s International Oversight Committee (IOC) and work in partnership with Study Abroad, Travel Management Services and other units across campus to provide guidance related to matters of international health, safety and security, so that research and study abroad continue to enrich the lives and careers of our students, faculty, and staff.
Please feel free to contact us at IOC@austin.utexas.edu or (512) 471-3144 for additional information.
For emergencies involving a UT student, faculty or staff, please contact International SOS at (215) 942-8478 or the UT Police Department 24/7 at (512) 471-4441. All calls will be immediately routed to the appropriate International Office or Travel Management crisis manager.
