The NTC Office of Study Abroad is currently monitoring the situation involving the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have reported the outbreak of the 2019-nCoV, which began in late December 2019 in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. A campus-wide committee, of faculty and staff, is working to ensure that we are taking appropriate precautions and using best practices to protect the Tulane community.
Participation in programs in countries that are considered a Level 3 by the CDC and State Department is being suspended due to health risks from novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Please be advised that currently, all Tulane sponsored travel to Italy, South Korea, and China is suspended until further notice.

Our Role Within the Global Community
Tulane's Office of Study Abroad facilitates the pursuit of academic exchange and study abroad for the Tulane undergraduate community. Through the close curation of a list of academic programs that meet the academic and personal needs of Tulane students and one-on-one and group advising, the OSA sends approximately 500 Tulane students abroad each year.
Working with other offices in the Center for Global Education, the OSA also conducts educational and informational programming to foster relationships between globally-minded community members and to enrich the sense of "the international" of Tulane's New Orleans campus.
We believe that assisting students in the articulation of their personal and academic goals for study abroad and the pursuit of these goals will help them acquire region and country-specific knowledge, empathize with differing ways of being in the world, and apply these newfound skills in their future endeavors.
