Teach Abroad Opportunities 

The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is committed to providing a broad spectrum of international experiences to the UWEC and UWEC-BC community. At the same time, in the face of the safety risks in the world, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is committed to protecting the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. In order to help protect our students and employees, the Travel Advisory Resources and Policy has been developed to provide a consistent set of standards. This document refers to the U.S. State Department Travel Advisories and Center for Disease Control warning system, which are foundational in guiding decisions on international travel for student and faculty/staff. Under the policy, student travel to countries under U.S. State Department Level 4-Do Not Travel is not allowed, and student travel to countries under U.S. State Department Level 3-Reconsider Travel and CDC Watch Level-3 Avoid Nonessential Travel requires a review and approval through the University Travel Risk Committee. The full document is available at: . Faculty/staff with questions are encourage to contact University Risk Management and Safety or the Center for International Education.
