About Global Travel

Global Travel is dedicated to supporting the health, safety, and security of University travelers engaged in Columbia Travel abroad. We can assist with pre-departure preparations, including overseeing the requirements of the university's International Travel Planning Policy and working closely with the university's 24/7 emergency assistance provider, International SOS. 

In support of the mission and core values of Columbia University, we monitor worldwide news, travel alerts, and International SOS Global Risk Ratings to assemble and disseminate safety resources to those on official Columbia Travel. 

We provide support for Columbia travelers and various international travel issues, such as providing services in times of crisis or emergency. In urgent situations, this includes making recommendations for traveler evacuation from a specific location(s) or halting travel to a specific location for a period of time.
