Special Statement on Brussels

March 22, 2016

To all MSU Travelers,

The Office of International Health and Safety (OIHS) and the Office of Study Abroad (OSA) are closely monitoring the results of the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium on March 22, 2016. We offer our sincere condolences to the people of Belgium and those elsewhere in Europe at this very difficult time. MSU had only one non-student international traveler in Belgium and we have confirmed the safety and well-being of that traveler. At this time, there are no plans to recommend the suspension of Study Abroad programs or cancellations of future travel to Belgium or other countries in Europe.

We ask all MSU travelers heading to Europe to review the Travel Alert issued by the US State Department in the wake of the attacks in Brussels.

Questions about international travel safety may be addressed to Christopher Daniel or Maureen Handrahan in OIHS. Emergencies should be reported to the 24/7 International Assistance Line at +1-517-353-3784.

Safe travels,

Christopher C. Daniel, MA, CEM
