International Travel Safety

The Office for Global Health, Safety, and Security supports the health, safety, and security of all MSU international travelers including students, faculty, and staff.

MSU employs three full-time staff persons dedicated to overseeing international health and safety concerns, and responding to emergencies abroad involving students, faculty or staff. These staff members evaluate risk, plan for emergencies, and manage crises for over 5,000 student, faculty, and staff international travelers each year.

24/7 International Assistance: 517-353-3784

MSU maintains this line for students, faculty, and staff to report an emergency situation or request emergency assistance. You may call direct or collect. If you don't know how to call from abroad, use this international calling guide.
