In March, we communicated with campus that due to ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic, all study abroad and university-sponsored international travel would be postponed immediately and remain postponed through the remainder of the summer.
Today, we are announcing that guidance restricting study abroad travel for UNO students, faculty and staff will be extended for the foreseeable future. As a member of the University of Nebraska system, UNO adheres to the University of Nebraska President's Executive Memorandum No. 25, which follows guidance by the CDC and U.S. Department of State.
Currently, both the CDC and U.S. Department of State strongly recommend avoiding all nonessential international travel and stand at Level 3 and Level 4 advisories, respectively. We will continue to navigate national guidance regarding travel and make an announcement as soon as we are able regarding any future plans for study abroad programming.
We understand that this decision is disappointing and may impact plans you were making for the semester and beyond. As we collectively navigate the unpredictability, the UNO Education Abroad team stands ready to answer any outstanding questions you may have and help support you during this time.
Students interested in global learning opportunities while international travel is restricted may choose from a variety of online programming such as remote internships and online global courses to connect to the wider world. Please visit educationabroad.unomaha.edu or contact UNO Education Abroad for more details.
In the Maverick Spirit,
