SMU is monitoring situation in Nice, France


The SMU Travel Oversight Committee is closely monitoring the situation in Nice, France, and is receiving updates from the U.S. State Department, International SOS, and study abroad program providers. No SMU students are studying in Nice. Our SMU community grieves for all those impacted by this horrific attack.


If you are studying abroad and have questions related to safety, please contact the director of your program abroad. Every SMU-approved study abroad program has an emergency preparedness plan and protocols.


You also may call the SMU 24/7 Emergency Call Center at 214-768-3333 with any questions or concerns. 


All SMU Abroad students are covered by emergency travel assistance through International SOS and may use the services of I-SOS worldwide during their term of study abroad.


Community members are reminded to register their travel with the State Department Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, or STEP.
