Miami University Global Assistance Program

As Miami University extends its global presence, faculty, staff, and students are traveling more frequently to locations around the world. The university recognizes our duty in safeguarding the health and safety of faculty, staff, and students as they travel internationally.

The Miami University Global Assistance Program (MU-GAP) supports travelers in a well-coordinated, collaborative effort, with experts from within the university, as well as contracted providers, and specialists in the field.

Miami University organizes all travel programs under the Miami University Study Abroad and Travel Guidelines based on the Forum on Education Abroad’s Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.The Guidelines and Standards provide a strong foundation for managing the risk from the initial orientation of students, through the operation of the program, and back on campus after the program.
