What if I need to travel to an area affected by Ebola?
The University has published a travel advisory and related travel policy, with which all members of our community need to be familiar.
An essential part of Columbia’s core mission consists of connecting the knowledge and research of its students, faculty and research staff to the search for solutions to the major challenges facing our global community. The dimensions of the Ebola outbreak and its potential threat constitute just such a major challenge. Mindful both of the University’s service mission and of its responsibility to protect our community from the Ebola threat, the University has determined to restrict student, faculty, and staff travel to three West African countries for any purpose other than to contribute to efforts to contain and eliminate the Ebola outbreak.
