In the recent tensions with North Korea, Notre Dame International (NDI) recognizes the importance of our role in supporting our students and monitoring world events closely. NDI is working in coordination with the US Department of State and peer institutions to be well-informed and proactively responsive. We are in contact with our students in South Korea and those planning on a spring 2018 international education semester in this region. We will continue to monitor world events and if the situation changes, will update this advisory.
Notre Dame remains committed to internationalization in all its manifestations and as such we have no plans at this point, to curtail or cancel any programs abroad. We do, however, discuss alternative courses of international education with students when world events shift. We will take whatever actions we deem necessary as circumstances arise to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff and to be sure our international education decisions are well grounded.
