Why must I register:Travel abroad should be a safe, enjoyable experience. However, as recent events show, there are times when the College has to quickly account for the whereabouts of every student, staff member, and faculty member in those countries to communicate with them and provide assistance. For this reason we ask you to complete this quick, simple form each time you travel outside of the 48 contiguous states. Whether a long or short trip, this form helps the College know where students, faculty, and staff are, and to take appropriate measures when responding to emergencies. In addition, by registering you will have access to GRID, an intelligence platform created by Global Rescue, which will ensure that you are well informed and prepared before and during your travels. This arrangement will allow you access to Destination Reports which outline medical and security risks in your host country and other countries you may visit. Through GRID you will also be able to view alert notifications for events that are happening around the world. In addition, while traveling, you will automatically receive health, safety, and security reports based on your destination, along with expert analysis and advice.
When to complete it: Student research abroad, faculty research abroad, business travel, faculty sabbatical, community service/volunteer work abroad, internships abroad, or any College-sponsored activity abroad. Students who are participating in a registered study abroad program do not need to complete this form.
Who submits it: All students, faculty, and staff traveling abroad from both Middlebury College and MIIS. Middlebury/MIIS students do not need to submit this if they have been approved to study abroad.
How long does it take: Maximum 5 minutes.
What information do I need to complete the registration: Your contact information abroad, where and when you are traveling, with whom, and why. After you register your first trip, you will not be asked for general information (i.e. passport number, emergency contact) when registering future trips.
