CEPA supports study abroad as an important means to encourage global understanding. Due to the recent terrorist activity in Europe we understand the rising concerns of our partner universities and, of course, the worries of parents in particular of sending their kids abroad.
This is why we would like to share a wonderfully written article, published on 03/22/2016 by Jessie Beck, with quotes from real parents. You can read it here: http://www.gooverseas.com/blog/parents-speak-up-on-rising-concerns-of-terrorism-and-study-abroad
We feel it is more important than ever to stand together and support study abroad as an important means to better understand different culture and ultimately prevail over those trying so very hard to prevent peace. While we cannot guarantee a risk-free environment, we make all efforts to ensure the safety, security, and well-being off all study abroad participants. (CEPA health & safety measures »)
