Club/Organization International Travel
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 the Education Abroad Office 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 the planning the trip and is also recommended to travel with the SU club/organization. Finally, the Safety Policy for International Travel with a Leader Representing SU 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.
Please review and follow the Club/Organization International Travel Process as outlined by Student Activities.
