Training & Resources

Throughout the academic year, the Office of International Health and Safety and the Office of Education Abroad offer program directors the opportunity to enhance their health, safety, and security expertise by participating in seminars, workshops, information-sharing sessions, and specialized trainings.

Critical Incident Management Seminars

The Office of International Health and Safety offers Critical Incident Management Seminars several times per year. All program directors and assistants must attend this year to learn more about our new partner International SOS.

Program Directors and Assistants may attend a seminar in person or virtually using MSU Zoom (RSVP requested for both). To RSVP, please email oihs(at)
