Health and Safety

Whether you are advising a study abroad student or leading a faculty-led program, we strongly encourage you to review the below links to become more familiar with health and safety topics prior to your student's or your program abroad.

International Health Insurance

KSU faculty and staff traveling abroad on KSU business are covered under a blanket international health insurance policy. This policy covers important costs that could be incurred while traveling abroad, including Emergency Medical Evacuation, Repatriation of Remains, a Family Assistance Benefit, a Bereavement Reunion Benefit, a Security Evacuation Benefit, and Worldwide Travel Assistance.

To obtain additional valuable information about the policy, please visit the KSU Office of Risk and Compliance.

NOTE: Kansas State University students traveling abroad on official KSU business, including attendance at conferences, work/intern abroad programs, volunteer abroad programs or study abroad programs should follow a different process. Please refer any students to Education Abroad in 304 Fairchild Hall ( or 785-532-5990) for more information.
