Practitioners' Resources

Travel health and safety support is a relatively new endeavor on many U.S. college campuses. In order to provide support to our peers as well as information for graduate students conducting research on this topic, the Office of Global Safety and Security has compiled the following resources. We hope to update this list twice a year, in January and August, and will attempt to fix broken links once a month.  Please email suggestions to globalsafety@northwestern.edu.
