Blocks Off-Campus (academic year) & CC Semesters Abroad
A block or semester off-campus during the regular academic year is an incredible opportunity for faculty and students to investigate a topic from multiple perspectives while being immersed in a relevant location. If you would like to offer a Block abroad during the academic year, contact the Office of International Programs (OIP) for relevant proposal information and deadlines.
The Office of International Programs has developed a faculty guide for developing and leading blocks abroad.
Are you travelling abroad on college business?
For BUSINESS travel: Colorado College contracts with International SOS (www.internationalsos.com) to provide faculty and staff with emergency assistance services in case of medical, political, or natural disaster emergencies and with University Health Partners (UHP) to provide health insurance abroad. These two coverages are provided at no cost to you when you are on business travel for the College. You must register your trip with our office to ensure coverage while abroad. Please download the Travel Registration Form. If family members are traveling with you, you are REQUIRED to purchase SOS coverage for them. Each family member costs $40.00 per year (September-September). You also have the option to purchase UHP insurance for each family member at $1.50 per day per person. Please download the Family SOS registration Form. Return forms to our office in Armstrong Hall along with your payment (cash or check).
For PERSONAL travel: As an employee benefit you and your dependents are automatically covered by MedEx emergency assistance. This covers you and your dependents when you travel more than 100 miles from home, including international travel, for a maximum of 180 days. MedEx is not health insurance but rather emergency assitance and medical evacuation coverage. You can print a card and read more information about coverage here.
