In accordance with CDC, WHO, and UNC guidance on COVID-19, we are examining each program’s feasibility and safety both abroad and domestically in the US.  At this time, we are still running many of our programs, abiding the restrictions in place, and with the understanding that aspects of them may change due to prevailing realities at home or in the program location.
