Travel updates for COVID-19

Since December 2019, there has been emerging public health concern regarding an outbreak of respiratory illness, now called COVID-19, caused by a new strain of coronavirus that was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

As more than 100 undergraduate and graduate students are preparing to participate in the Global Studies Internship Program this summer, we want to share ongoing determinations that are being made with respect to our international programs as well as the University’s latest guidance to our student community.
