On Call’s Travel Risk Management Programs for Higher Education

Protect Your Travelers, Protect Your Institution

Students, faculty and staff face some unique challenges when they travel abroad. Terrorism, natural disasters, medical emergencies, culture shock …these risks are real. As emerging study abroad locations increase in popularity, poor infrastructure and access to quality medical care can cause even a minor issue to become more serious. In addition to protecting constituents’ health and safety, duty of care legislation, ethics, and reputational concerns leave higher education administrators with a lot on their plates.

The question becomes: how can you effectively assess risks and educate your travelers—while still doing your day job and actually managing emergencies as they happen? Luckily with On Call by your side, the answer is simple. For over 20 years, On Call has enabled academic institutions to take a proactive and holistic approach to not only managing travel emergencies when they arise—but planning for and even preventing them before they happen.

  • Proactive Education:
    Identifying risks, monitoring threats, testing emergency protocols and educating your students, faculty and staff accordingly—our goal is to equip everyone in your institution with the support and knowledge they need to not only react to a crisis, but to prevent one from happening in the first place.
  • Comprehensive Emergency Response:
    In addition to natural disaster response and medical and political evacuation, we handle travel issues big and small, domestic or abroad—from locating quality medical care, replacing prescriptions and even providing legal assistance.
  • Flexible Program Options:
    With years of experience serving colleges and universities, we understand that your needs are different than those of a corporation. We can scale up or down based on your institution’s size, budget, and unique duty of care initiatives. That way, you get the services you need without paying for things that aren’t relevant to your institution.
