Safety and Risk


Welcome to the Home of International Risk and Security

USF World's International Risk and Security Office is designated to support all USF System faculty, staff and student international travel. You will find a great deal of information here that we believe should serve you well as you plan and eventually travel abroad with USF.
USF System Policy #10-507 designates that all student international travel must be registered with the Education Abroad Office or USF Health and must be authorized by USF World. Enrollment in USF's International Health and Evacuation Coverage is mandatory.
Student travel is defined as any undergraduate or graduate student or University recognized student group, and the associated University and University Direct Support Organization ("DSO") employees and University System appointed volunteers engaged in any international travel conducted as part of a USF program requirement, elective, research project, service learning or any international activity tied to an individual’s status as an active USF student, regardless of the source of funding for the travel.
