The VCU Global Education Office (GEO) provides a secure website within Studio Abroad for faculty, staff, and students to record their international travel plans. The travel registry will enable our office to collect, centralize and, when necessary, distribute information about international endeavors for the VCU community. GEO will serve as one centralized source for contact information in case of an emergency abroad involving a member of the university community.
In the interest of the safety of VCU faculty, staff and students, travel registration with the Global Education Office is required for all individuals engaged in VCU-related travel abroad. GEO will ensure that all registered travelers receive necessary health and safety pre-departure information as well as international insurance coverage.
