  • International SOS, UM’s first point of contact in an international emergency that provides free, 24-7 medical and travel security assistance to faculty, staff and students
  • MoveON mobility management software
  • International Mobility Resource Network, a network of UM professionals involved in mobility
  • Travel Crisis Team, which is responsible for coordinating emergency response, travel suspensions and alerts, etc.
  • Travel Services, a Financial Services unit that administers the University’s travel program, including procurement of travel for and on behalf of the UM community, travel arrangements and expense claims, the travel credit card program, and the Concur travel and expense tool

A new international travel tools webpage is also available, as well as travel risk resources and a summary of the travel safety and crisis supports the UM offers faculty, staff and students. Information on data security during travel is also available.
