As Columbia University expands its global presence, faculty, staff, and students are traveling more frequently to various parts of the world and to regions with marginal medical care facilities or political unrest. In early 2007, Columbia University contracted with a company called International SOS ("ISOS") to provide 24-hour worldwide emergency medical and evacuation assistance for eligible Columbia travelers (see Eligibility section below) traveling on University-related activities. ISOS is the world's largest medical and security assistance company, with more than 3,000 professionals in 24-hour Alarm Centers, international clinics, and remote-site medical facilities across five continents.
