Disciplinary Issues

  • Time management is a major concern on trips. Students need to be aware of your expectations about being on time at meeting places.Students being late to meet for a trip or activity has caused a great deal of stress in our experience. We usually set the time for a few minutes before the “real” time to leave to give a cushion for those who may be late.
  • Students need to know how you will deal with inappropriate behavior before you leave on the trip. Many study abroad offices have policies that faculty should follow. One idea is to have a verbal warning, then a written warning, and then the student is sent home at his or her expense. If the student has endangered the welfare of others or himself or herself, the student may need to be separated from the group and sent home.
