IU Students in France Are Safe

November 14, 2015

In the aftermath of Friday’s tragic attacks in Paris, Indiana University immediately began reaching out to individual students and programs in France where IU students are studying to ensure they were safe and to provide any necessary support. The university is happy to be able to report that all 17 IU students studying in France this semester (15 IU Bloomington students and two IUPUI students) are safe. In addition, we have received word that other students currently studying in Europe this semester, and who may have been traveling in France yesterday, are also safe.

The safety of our students while traveling abroad is of the utmost importance to the university. At this time, the university is not recommending that students return to the United States, but we will continue to closely monitor events in Paris and around the world to provide as much support as possible to our students who are studying abroad.

In addition, our thoughts and best wishes go out to our students from France currently studying at IU. The university has reached out to this group and stands ready to provide any support our students may need as they deal with this horrific situation.
