Faculty and Staff

Taking Students Abroad 

To access resources for Taking Students Abroad visit: 

International Travel Registry

Washburn University recognizes international education is an essential component within its academic mission.  In an effort to reduce potential risks, WU requires all faculty, and staff members traveling internationally (through WU approved programs or activities receiving University funding) to register their international travel using The International Travel Registry. For step by step instructions visit: International Travel Registry Instructions

Faculty and Staff who travels abroad for University-related purposes must register their international travel and provide all supporting documentation no later than two weeks prior to their expected departure date.  Students participating WU-administered study abroad programs will complete the relevant program application process administered by the WU Office of International Programs, and therefore do not need to complete a separate application to the International Travel Registry. 

Faculty and Staff Insurance Services for Foreign Travel 

By registering, travelers will be covered through Faculty and Staff Insurance Services for Foreign Travel.

Alert Traveler

By registering, travelers will also be granted access to the AlertTraveler app to receive the most up-to-date, in-depth, traveler information delivered in real-time destination reports and alerts pushed to travelers in order to make informed decisions.

For further information, contact the Study Abroad Coordinator.
