Annex X: LSC Crisis Response Plan - Domestic & International (including Travel Abroad)
The purpose of this annex is to assist employees and responding agencies, faculty participating on a LSC-Led Study Abroad Program and employees conducting business on behalf of Lone Star College at a U.S. campus, while traveling or working away from a LSC facility in the U.S. or abroad and will serve as an important procedural resource to guide the LSC Emergency Response Team.
Safety is the top priority in administering quality remote U.S. campus, study abroad programs and safe operations for LSC employees and students. LSC shares the responsibility for monitoring local and
national conditions affecting campus, student and employee safety and in providing relevant information to program participants. LSC employees share the responsibility for monitoring local and national conductions affecting their safety. Participants themselves are responsible for becoming familiar with all materials provided and for following safety guidelines given by LSC and host institutions.
LSC cannot guarantee employee or student safety or eliminate all risks associated with travel abroad or across the U.S. Orientation information, both printed and oral, contains information for employees and students about health and safety issues including information related to international travel. Adherence to this information, along with appropriate behavior, caution, professional perspective, can prevent many crisis situations. LSC makes every effort to provide students and employees the information they need to make responsible decisions about their participation in, and conduct while attending, working, or participating in LSC-Led program and activities.
