The health and safety of study away students is of primary concern to Macalester College. At the Center for Study Away, our approach to student health and safety blends preparation, support, and response. This focus is carried throughout the study away cycle: program review, student advising, pre-departure orientation, and student support during study away and upon return to campus.

Macalester College endorses the recommendations of the Forum on Education Abroad’s Standards of Good Practice and the recommendations of the NAFSA Health and Safety Task Force.
