Suffolk enrolls all students in Drum Cussac's Global Risk Manager while they are studying abroad. Drum is a service that provides immediate support for any challenges that arise when you're traveling. Services include medical assistance, security assistance, and travel assistance abroad. They also include pre-travel advising, such as providing information about vaccinations and other country-specific preparations. You will receive a Travel Risk Brief and Incident Alerts before and during travel from Drum Cussac. You can direct any questions to Drum's 24/7 Global Response Center at +1 857-343-8107 or Suffolk's Center for International Programs and Services.
