Health & Safety

The health and safety of study abroad participants is important to the entire Northwestern community, not just the Global Learning Office (GLO). To help you understand the institution's role in this process, as well as your own responsibilities, we encourage you to review the following health and safety information. In addition, Northwestern's Office of Global Safety and Security (OGSS) supports the health, safety, and security of students who travel abroad, both before departure and while abroad.
