All programs are equipped with emergency plans that cover medical needs, natural disaster or acts of terrorism and/or violent crimes. Students should ask program providers about their emergency plans in advance and get 24/7 contact numbers for program providers abroad (Salve Regina will provide our Office of Safety and Security number in pre-departure materials). The Office of International Programs is in contact with staff at these sites in the event of an emergency, at home or abroad. Effective and timely communications between students, parents, home and host institutions and/or third party providers is a reasonable expectation. However, we cannot absolutely guarantee your safety while abroad.
