University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP)

Worldwide Alerts
The UCEAP Systemwide Office is committed to offering reliable information to UCEAP staff, faculty, and students and their parents regarding relevant health precautions and potential risks. 
 
UCEAP's emergency management framework includes planning, preparation and response. We have experienced staff in California and abroad, local partners, UCEAP insurance, security, and assistance providers, and procedures and policies to quickly respond and to guide the initial response.
 
UCEAP participants are responsible for their own health and safety through the decisions they make before and during their program and by their daily choices and behaviors while on UCEAP. Preparing before an emergency plays a vital role in ensuring that students know where to go, how to reach out to emergency contacts, and know how to keep themselves safe. Experience with past emergencies has shown that all UCEAP constituents, including students, need to be informed and act in a coordinated manner for the response to be effective.
