International Response Team
The University has an International Response Team (IRT) that:
- Reviews and makes recommendations on all travel waiver applications.
- Reviews and develops a plan for any situation requiring a comprehensive response that occurs while an individual or group is out of the country. When necessary and at the discretion of the CIP, the CIP may take action prior to full consultation with the IRT.
- Makes recommendations for enhancements or changes to travel guidelines to the international steering body of the University.
The IRT is composed of representatives of relevant offices and units across campus as follows:
Center for International Programs
International Student/Scholar Services
Temporary members may be added to address case-specific situations (e.g. representative from program, faculty with expertise). Each office/unit appoints its representative on the team.
The CIP is responsible for gathering as much information as possible to present to the IRT for individual cases and situations.
