Emergency Support Services

 

Science on Demand's staff stands ready to support students and programs in any emergency. We work closely with the home university to respond quickly, with a cool head, and ready to problem-solve any situation. Because we are located centrally in Europe, we can respond to an emergency very quickly anywhere in Europe, and we also have the capacity tp assist in China, India, Nepal and other sites in Asia, as well as many sites in Africa.

 

Types of emergencies might include:

  • a sick faculty leader needs temporary support to carry on with a short-term program
  • accompany a vulnerable or ill student, or one who has been dismissed from a program, back to the US
  • arrange a safe location and meet an individual or group of students following an emergency, such as a terrorist attack or natural disaster
  • help carry out evacuation or new program settlement
  • assist and monitor a student who has been hospitalized
  • whatever needed ---

 

Science on Demand is well versed in safety and security issues facing students, programs, and knowledge and understanding of legal issues, policies and procedures in place at U.S.-based universities.

 

Most emergencies are covered by Bo L√łkkegaard, and we have trained a team of agents to respond to an emergency situation if Bo is not available. Contact and planning a response takes place through Bo. All of these consultants have significant international living, studying and work experience in multiple countires, as well as experience advising and supporting students.

 

Current client: University of Minnesota's Learning Abroad Center for undergraduate students, and the Global Programs Strategy Alliance, for support of travelling graduate students, faculty, and staff.
