Faculty & Staff

Registration with On Call International and enrollment with CISI connects you to the university’s international emergency protocol and enables the university to assist you in the event of an emergency abroad.

Faculty and staff should book travel in Concur in order to be automatically enrolled in On Call International. If booking travel outside the system, please register your travel with On Call International by emailing your itinerary to trips@oncallinternational.com in order to receive in-country security information and alerts.

Faculty and staff should also register all business travel abroad with CISI to enroll in the university’s business travel supplemental international insurance policy. This policy is independent of HR Benefits and is available at no charge for all Kennesaw State University faculty and staff. Do not register personal dates of travel.

The university does not require petitions for faculty or staff conducting business travel to high risk locations. However, if you are planning to travel to a location with one of the below active designations, please review the KSU International Risk-Designated Travel Guidelines and contact globalsafety@kennesaw.edu prior to departure.
