In order to mitigate the risks to individuals traveling abroad under University auspices, UC Berkeley has established an International Group Travel Policy which covers all campus sponsored and organized group travel to international destinations. The policy contains a simple set of procedures intended to reduce risk while not inhibiting the extensive amount of interesting and productive travel engaged in by students, faculty and staff.
If you are a UC Berkeley faculty or staff member organizing, supervising or funding campus sponsored group travel, including courses, study tours, excavations, service-learning etc. you should consult the policy and obtain the required approvals prior to the group commencing travel.
