Please be vigilant with your personal safety and review the information contained online and in the prepared orientation material and covered at our JWU pre-departure orientation. JWU has a robust travel risk management team that works closely with our program partners overseas, including exchange, internship, affiliate, and institutional partners, who alert us regarding international events, offering suggested actions and responses.
