Recognizing that all travel involves risk, the University of Arizona (UA) and University of Toronto created processes to facilitate high risk travel. Each process involves assessing the risks to each traveler and preparing them for each destination. Rather than automatically canceling programs or travel this nuanced process allows universities with high risk tolerance to individually consider travel to higher risk destinations. This session will share the development of systems at two universities and what is involved in their travel reviews.
