IES Abroad recently published the MAP for Student Health, Safety & Crisis Management, a detailed set of guidelines for addressing student safety and crisis management in study abroad programs. It is the third publication in IES Abroad's Model Assessment Practice series, which also includes the IES Abroad MAP for Study Abroad Programs and the IES Abroad MAP for Language & Intercultural Communication. The author, William P. Hoye, is Executive Vice President, General Counsel, and Chief Operating Officer at IES Abroad. He also manages the IES Abroad Crisis Management Team.
The IES Abroad MAP for Student Health, Safety & Crisis Management outlines specific IES Abroad standards for responding to crises and managing student health and safety emergencies; features “best practices” with respect to responding to crises and handling student health and safety emergencies abroad; and offers a means for others in the study abroad field to adopt these or similar standards, with the goal of enhancing the health and safety of the more than 275,000 U.S. college and university students who study abroad each year.
