Staff members at the College of Global Studies at Arcadia University are prepared to deal with any emergencies that may arise. Arlene Snyder is our Director of Health, Safety and Security. Along with a team led by Tim Barton, Director of Student Services, and Rich Conroy, Student Safety Officer, Arlene ensures that our students and staff abroad are aware of what to do in the event of an emergency, and how students can take steps to be healthy and safe. The team has the most up-to-date health and safety information and procedures in place in order to make thoughtful decisions, while keeping students, parents and our partner institutions in the United States informed about situations occurring in-country.

Our offices in Glenside are fully staffed from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Eastern standard time Monday to Friday. For matters of an emergent or urgent nature outside of these regular business hours, please use the following contact information:

If a student is overseas and is involved in an emergency situation, the student should either contact an emergency responder or the on-site staff immediately. If a student is unable to do so and they have contacted you, please contact our Glenside staff listed above.

Each staff member has the emergency contact information for each of our overseas program sites. All of our overseas offices have emergency contact procedures in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our staff is able to contact students quickly and can relay information back to Arcadia University promptly.
