International Oversight Committee

The International Oversight Committee (IOC) was established to develop guidelines and formulate policies to maintain the health and safety of University of Texas at Austin students, faculty, and staff who study or conduct research and/or business internationally.

Appointed by the president, the IOC is composed of representatives from across the university, including academic leaders, faculty members and specialists. The IOC assesses levels of risk in countries or regions with significant health or safety concerns in consultation with the Texas Global Risk & Safety team, partners across campus and experts in the field of international risk and safety.

The IOC is dedicated to preserving academic freedom and the university's robust research agenda, while protecting the safety of UT Austin students, faculty and staff.
