Health & Safety

The University of Texas at Tyler is committed to the safety and well-being of our students abroad.  The following resources will help students prepare for their travels.  Many cities abroad are safer than some areas of the United States, but lack of familiarity with the culture, language, and locales may increase the risk of a mishap.
