Navigating Health, Safety and Security for Off-Campus Programs

Open Enrollment Workshop Hosted by the Philadelphia Area Independent School Business Officers Association (PAISBOA)

The workshop will provide an overview of the hazard landscape and the risk management strategies available for off-campus programs. We’ll begin from the perspective of what trip leaders need to be able to do and what skills, understanding and information access they need. The workshop will include most recent data, standards and best practices. Although the lecture content is primarily focused on international programs, the larger format and discussions are intended to be inclusive of all off campus programming, both domestic and international.

The curriculum will include information acquisition and vetting strategies, cross cultural implications for safety, and emergency response. We’ll look at program structure, policy making and training for staff and program participants.

Participants will come away with a more informed perspective as well as actionable tools for reducing risk. The format consists of small group work on scenarios interspersed with content lectures. Most scenarios will be internationally focused. Participants will receive a readings packet prior to the training.
