International is different.”

That was the overarching message coming from Don Filer, the executive director of Yale’s Office of International Affairs, during the International Activities Support Forum, an event hosted on Oct. 24 by Yale’s International Operations and Compliance Committee (IOCC) at the Greenberg Conference Center.

The IOCC was established more than 12 years ago to help faculty, students, and staff meet operational challenges and compliance requirements as they engage in various activities worldwide. Members of the committee advise on a range of topics including complying with legal requirements that apply to the university’s international activities, assessing and mitigating travel risks, and providing resources for safe international travel.
