International Educator - January/February 2018 - S6

"The big thing for us," Hope says, "is it really allows us
to know where people are."
As universities increasingly send more students
abroad to more locations-and less traditional ones at
that-some administrations are making adjustments
like those made at the University of Kentucky to
better account for the safety of students, faculty, and
staff abroad, and to be ready when things go wrong.
Parents, administrators, and others increasingly want
to know more about students' safety and whereabouts
as information about events spreads in real time.
The field is responding with increased specialization:
More staff are focused full-time on international risk,
and new ways to chart and share incident data have
emerged to supplement longstanding strategies for
handling risky situations.
It's not that there's more total risk in the world, says
Julie Anne Friend, the director of global safety and
security and deputy Title IX coordinator for global
activities at Northwestern University. "There are more
opportunities to engage in risk because it's easier to
travel to remote corners of the world that people would

probably not have gone to before," she says. But, "I think
there are also more resources and services available than
ever before."

More Students, More Places,
More Risk
At the University of South Carolina-Columbia, the study
abroad office has seen more student interest in international travel and a change in where students want to go.
"Our numbers have been increasing every year for the
last 10 years," says Morgan Morris, assistant director of
health, safety, and graduate programs in the university's
study abroad office. The university sent 1,742 students
abroad last year.
Morris says the increase she's seen has been accompanied by a shift toward longer-term opportunities
such as semester-long programs, which have grown, she
estimates, by 10 percent to 15 percent in the last year.
She's also seen more interest in what might be considered less traditional locations. "Historically, our top five
[destinations] were always in Europe," she says. "Now,
Costa Rica and Australia are in our top five."
