2023-2024 Academic Catalog

Global and Intercultural Affairs Center

Some of the most transformative experiences you will have at the University of Dayton come from engaging with a global community.  At the Global and Intercultural Affairs Center, we collaborate with campus partners, members from the local community, and partners abroad to offer a variety of options for academic, professional and personal growth.  Your time at UD will offer you many opportunities to explore different cultures, build relationships, and expand perspectives.

How will you enhance the global and intercultural aspects of your UD education? Whether it’s a program focused on higher education and human services in Ireland, completing a physician assistant elective in South Africa, or getting involved in conversations at the Dialogue Zone, we are here to help you.  Our intercultural and global learning options take place on-campus, virtually, across the U.S. and abroad. 

The following two sections are related to important travel considerations to keep in mind as you plan for the future. 

Release Agreement and Travel Registration

All students participating in a university-sponsored international program must complete the Release and Agreement Form which releases the University from liability for claims including, but not limited to, injury, delay and damage while abroad. As part of this agreement, the student agrees to abide by the University's standards of behavior while in the host country or countries. Students are also required to complete the Student Health Information and Emergency Treatment Authorization Form which requests medical information and the Behavioral Contract which outlines the institution's expectations for behavior while abroad. Depending on the program, students may need to complete the Authorization Form in order to transfer academic credit earned as part of a study abroad program to the University of Dayton.

International SOS

The University of Dayton has contracted with International SOS (SOS) to provide worldwide medical, travel and security assistance and evacuation services for all faculty, staff and students participating in university-related international travel. Services include up-to-date reports on safety and security, health issues, medical referrals and vaccination requirements for individual countries. SOS offers UD travelers and their dependents travel, medical and security advice and services, and protects against a variety of difficulties that could arise while abroad.
