Health and Safety

Health and Safety is a Priority

Kirkwood Community College considers the health and safety of students on education abroad opportunities a top priority. While no organization or institution can guarantee the safety of participants, the risks can be significantly reduced if program staff, students, parents, and advisers at the host and home institutions all work together. Kirkwood has developed specific health and safety policies related to education abroad with the goal of designing our study abroad programs to be safe, secure and healthy.
