Safety First

For many years our Institute has considered the safety of our students and faculty first in selecting sites for our programs. We will not run a program in a location where there is a State Department travel advisory in effect.

Our programs are not run in areas that are typical tourist destinations. In the few exceptions, our locations within tourist areas are not in the main stream. Since ours are not travel programs, we follow the roads less travelled and seek to mingle with locals in low profile situations.

Applicants are encouraged to consult their site directors concerning safety issues at any of our sites.
