The SAFETI (Safety Abroad First - Educational Travel Information) Clearinghouse Project creates and disseminates resources to support study abroad program development and implementation, emphasizing health and safety issues. This is possible using a World Wide Web-based Clearinghouse format, enhancing collaboration among higher education institutions, government, and non-governmental organizations. It is funded through support by FIPSE (the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education) of the U.S. Department of Education. It is a part of the Center for Global Education.
The following institutions have also been funded through the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education as Project Partners and have been important in the development of SAFETI resources and the SAFETI Clearinghouse.
