For over fifty years, The Florida State University's International Programs has been committed to providing an extensive academic and cultural experience that enriches the lives of our students. It has always been our policy to put students' safety first.  Our highest priority is the welfare and security of our students.  We make every effort to facilitate a secure and rewarding learning environment. Students venture abroad to experience other cultures, and to gain a deeper appreciation of their role as American citizens in the world. FSU International Programs is fully committed to helping students realize these aspirations.

Our year-round programs are administered by permanent resident staff members who are sensitive to the unique needs of American students. Program directors maintain contact with our Tallahassee office, local authorities, and United States officials, both at home and abroad.

Each program holds regular meetings of students and staff in which safety procedures and precautions are detailed and re-emphasized.   Each has an Emergency Plan designed specifically for it.  Plans include details about local health care facilities, meeting points and procedures, and contingency plans and funds should it ever become necessary to evacuate our students.

All participants on overseas programs—students, faculty and staff—are advised to monitor and follow all US State Department announcements and travel advisories.  Students are reminded to inform center directors of the details of their independent travel, heed US State Department announcements and travel advisories, and take relevant US Embassy/Consulate contact information with them.

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, the Florida State University study center safety guides include institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters. The report also contains statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off campus buildings or property owned or controlled by The Florida State University; and on public property within or immediately adjacent and accessible from the campus.
