Teach Abroad Opportunities 

The U.S. State Department changed how it advises U.S. citizens of the risk associated with international travel. As a result, UW-Eau Claire is currently revising the “Travel Warning Procedure”. Faculty, staff, and students who have questions about the new travel advisory system used by the U.S. State Department or the revision to the previous policy should contact the Center for International Education.
