Summer and Fall 2020 Study Abroad Program Cancellation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the unprecedented decision to cancel all study abroad programs set for summer and fall 2020. Our actions take into account our current review process for programs abroad listed below. 

The decision reflects the University’s interest in preventing exposure to the virus and the need for faculty and students to navigate unpredictable circumstances overseas, such as access to healthcare, disruptions to local services, and the potential for travel interruptions or restrictions. In addition, given the intensive block schedule of faculty-led Study Abroad programs, logistical disruptions could limit the ability to offer a high impact program abroad. Suspending our programs prioritizes the health and well-being of our University community members and supports the academic integrity of our study abroad programs. 

Please review the COVID-19 Alerts page for the latest information from St. Edward's University.
