Safety is of utmost importance to the entire IPSL community. Our in-country staff advise students on issues related to their safety and give them guidelines about traveling within the city and countryside. It is important that students listen to and adhere to the safety recommendations.
The Program Directors are well-informed on local and regional conditions and keep IPSL and its students apprised of any changes which might affect them. They are in regular contact with the Portland, Oregon office and are prompt in reporting any changes in conditions. In addition, IPSL has a 24-hour emergency contact system that can be utilized in case of a student health or safety emergency.
