CEA is closely monitoring the ongoing situation between Russia and Ukraine. Currently, there is minimal risk to the physical safety of CEA program participants in Europe as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We do not expect the situation to impact any CEA program location.
Due to the risks and challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to strongly discourage any international travel outside of a student’s program country. We further strongly recommend that students avoid any personal travel to Russia, Ukraine, and immediate surrounding regions as well as avoid protests or demonstrations as they can escalate quickly.
This situation can carry a heavy mental burden and may be stressful for students abroad. We encourage CEA students to take advantage of remote or in-person counseling which is available through our CISI student insurance with a nominal deductible.
CEA will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and update our students and partners accordingly. At this time, we do not foresee any changes to current or upcoming CEA programs.
Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine and our deepest sympathies go out to all who have been affected by these events.
