About us

Established in October of 2013, the Office of Global Safety and Security (OGSS) supports the health, safety and security of students, faculty and staff who travel abroad for a variety of reasons under university support or sponsorship. In collaboration with colleagues across campus, as well as partners in the U.S. and abroad, we strive to be creative, proactive and responsive as well as to emulate and set best practices in this new and growing specialty. Learn more about our office goals.

The OGSS regularly works with the a variety of groups and organizations both on and off campus. See our affiliated organizations.
