When college and university students study abroad, their institution's obligations under Title IX of The Education Act Amendments of 1972, the Clery Act, and Campus SaVE travel with them.

This publication addresses an institution's obligations for responding to sexual violence on study abroad trips. It provides best practices for training faculty,  administrators, and students as they prepare to go abroad by addressing:

  • The integration of sexual harassment policies into study abroad policies
  • The importance of training students on cultural awareness and bystander intervention
  • How to respond if a student is sexually assaulted while abroad

This resource also raises considerations in investigating and adjudicating sexual violence incidents between students who are studying abroad in the same program.
