Wintersession Travel Courses: Mandatory Pre-Departure Meeting (Mexico, all courses)


All WS travel course participants enrolled in courses in MEXICO must attend in person.

The Student Orientation meeting will cover:

  • RISD Support for students while abroad
  • Student expectations and responsibilities
  • Health and Safety practices
  • TITLE IX and consent while abroad
  • Mental wellness while abroad
  • LGBTQ+ considerations
  • Medical insurance
  • Visa (if applicable)
Please note: This year the course-specific pre-departure meetings with faculty will take place immediately following a general presentation from RISD Global. During the course-specific pre-departure meeting we will also discuss all travel suggestions (e.g. what to wear, cultural acclimation) and the housing + studio facilities.
