Policies & Guidelines

USC tracks all student travel, except personal. Department designated Program Coordinators (faculty/staff) act as liaisons between programs and Strategic and Global Initiatives, the Office of Insurance, and Campus Support & Intervention. All travel, including student-initiated travel abroad, are required to have a Program Coordinator. The University depends on Program Coordinators for their department’s data collection and crisis response.
