Club Travel Abroad
STUDENT CLUBS/ORGANIZATIONS -- Read the statement below and consult with Bernie Liang, firstname.lastname@example.org, 3rd Floor of the Student Center, for required University procedures.
Seattle University recognizes that well-planned, intentionally-designed international travel can provide exceptional learning opportunities.
Communicating across cultures, languages, faith traditions and world views produces some of the most powerful personal growth in participants.
However, international travel presents many more challenges (safety, health, logistical, communication and cultural) that inherently increase individual and institutional risk. Therefore; the University requires that student groups consult with both Student Activities and Education Abroad in designing the trip and take exceptional care in researching their in-country partner organization.
An SU faculty or staff member is expected to assist in developing the trip and to be included in the group travel unless explicit permission is granted by the University.
Finally, the International Student Travel Policy prohibits travel to countries where the US Department of State has issued a Travel Warning (or other conditions listed in the policy) no matter how worthy the cause.
STEP 1: Review policy, research and document the partner organization, and submit request to Bernie Liang, Director of Student Activities.
STEP 2: Upon approval of your trip, each participant must submit an Immersion Travel Abroad Waiver and Release and a Student Health Form.
