The best way to handle an emergency is to plan for it. Make sure you have a response in place for your education abroad office before a crisis occurs.

The education abroad office is often one of the busiest places on campus, and if an emergency situation arises involving education abroad participants, having a plan of action is the best way to ensure that you and your staff are equipped to handle it. Whether the issue affects large groups of students or a single individual, the campus community or a whole country, Crisis Management for Education Abroad will help you prepare for the worst.

Don’t get caught off guard the next time your office needs to respond quickly. In this book, experienced education abroad experts draw on case studies and share guidance on how to resolve crises ranging from arrests to natural disasters to mental health emergencies and everything in between.
