Of course there are some risks when traveling at home or abroad. We take great care to plan as best we can and be safe on the ground so we can enjoy the benefits of experiencing another culture and another corner of our world, including:

* CLU checks travel alerts to be aware of all risks as posted by the US State Department

http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1093.html

* There are risk management and emergency plans made by CLU and our international host site.

* During free time, participants are taken to areas known by our international site host; participants are instructed to travel in groups

* CLU staff keeps multiple copies of passport and travel information both with the group and back at the University; travel itineraries and emergency contacts are stored with University Administration, and some information is posted here on the website.

* If you have concerns about the safety of this experience, please contact Melissa at revmmmd@callutheran.edu or Karen at kschomak@callutheran.edu.
