Given events around the world over the last year, the Institute, in collaboration with Middlebury College has reevaluated the ways in which we support Institute faculty and staff during the periods of time they are abroad.
Because faculty and staff engage the world in a wide variety of ways, it is important that we manage the risks that you may face when going abroad. To this end, in those instances when you are participating in an activity that is sponsored or supported by the Institute in any way, we are introducing new protocols designed to better manage the inherent risks of traveling abroad.
We have adopted a new Institute policy requiring all faculty, staff, and students traveling abroad on any Institute-sponsored activity to register their plans and all contact information with the Institute prior to departure. We need this information in the event of any natural or man-made emergencies.
Once you know your travel plans, please register them through Middlebury's website.
