Safety

ICEE has an impeccable track record of maintaining student and group safety at all times.  The health and safety of our students is of utmost importance to ICEE.  Our dedicated safety team leads a comprehensive global risk management system, which touches every element of all ICEE programs.

ICEE’s carefully structured programs coordinate itineraries and logistics to protect and enhance the experiences of our students without sanitizing them.  ICEE places the highest priority on the health, safety, and security of all of our students.  Through a combination of risk management, excellent planning, good communication, flexible itineraries, local contacts, and caring ICEE Academic Directors, ICEE endeavors to always be prepared and to respond appropriately whenever needed.  ICEE’s Academic Directors are available 24/7 to students during all of our study tour programs.  Further, building on our significant experience with risk assessment and emergency preparedness, and utilizing extensive global networks, ICEE is able to adapt quickly to dynamic situations and tailors health, safety, and security measures to each location and circumstance.  Safety cannot, of course, be guaranteed abroad, just as it cannot be guaranteed in the United States.  However, ICEE is committed to taking the necessary steps to maximize student safety and security at each and every destination.  ICEE works with a variety of external resources and continually monitors world news sources, including briefs from the U.S. State Department, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the United Kingdom’s Home Office, and the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC).

Being prepared enables us to adapt to dynamic changes in the natural and political world to both prevent and respond to risk quickly and effectively.
