Safety, Health and Wellness
The safety, health and wellness of our students is a priority at Gustolab International Food Systems and Sustainability (GLI). We are an experienced organization working with US universities in the areas of food systems and sustainability. We understand university students from the US and other countries and the challenges they may face in Italy, Japan and Vietnam.
Gustolab International requires all students in its direct enroll programs to enroll in an insurance policy with Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). Please note that for only one to two dollars a day this insurance solves multiple difficulties you would encounter in Italy should you attempt to use the Italian health services or insurance policies from the states. You will be provided more information on the specific policy and the registration process with your acceptance notice. Students must show proof of enrollment in CISI insurance within 30 days of acceptance by GLi. Different conditions may apply for students from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Hobart and William Smith Colleges or students attending other customized field schools.
