Fostering Safe Travel

The University of Texas at San Antonio is committed to making study, research, and other academic pursuits, both domestic and international, safe and accessible for faculty, staff, and students. In order to foster safe travel and improve our roadrunners’ experience abroad, UTSA leadership, and Global Initiatives are working with internal and external experts to mitigate risks and improve policies, procedures, programs, and operations.
Here are some guidelines:
  • If you are a UTSA student, faculty and/or staff traveling on university business, you must: submit a travel request to the IOC and register your travel in ISOS.   
  • Global Initiatives coordinates the International Oversight Committee (IOC) to advise the Vice Provost for Global Initiatives on health and safety issues as well as guidelines related to international travel.  
  • The International SOS (ISOS) is a service that monitors overseas travel and responds to overseas emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, offering emergency assistance to UTSA travelers. Their services include English-speaking doctors, medical referrals, and evacuation assistance, as well as regional and country-specific risk and safety reporting.
