The International Oversight Committee (IOC), appointed by the President, has been established to develop guidelines and formulate policies to maintain the health and safety of University of Texas at Austin students, faculty and staff who study or conduct research and/or business internationally.
The IOC is comprised of representatives from across the university appointed by the President, including academic leaders, faculty members and specialists. In consultation with the Global Risk and Safety team in the International Office, partners across campus and experts in the field of international risk and safety, the IOC assesses levels of risk in countries or regions with significant health or safety concerns.
The IOC is dedicated to preserving academic freedom and the University's robust research agenda, while protecting the safety of the University's students, faculty and staff.
