Emergency Contact Information
To reach your student while he or she is abroad, use the phone/fax information given to you by your student or use the contact information listed on this web page for your student's course or program. The Global Studies Program cannot list individual homestay contact information for students on this website, but can provide this information if you contact us.
To reach someone at UAH in an emergency, please call one of the following numbers. If your emergency is time sensitive, begin calling people in the order listed below during normal work hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m. M-F). Outside of normal work hours, please consult the emergency contact information given to you by your student or by calling the University Police. If contacting staff outside of the Global Studies Program, be sure to mention that you are calling about a study abroad emergency and that you are unable to reach anyone directly associated with Global Studies.
- Dr. David Johnson, Director, Global Studies Program, (256) 824-6288 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mr. Glenn Dasher, Dean, College of Liberal Arts, Phone: (256) 824-6200
- Dr. Regina Hyatt, Dean of Students, Phone: (256) 824-6700

If you cannot reach someone at UAH, then, in an emergency only, telephone or email local contacts associated with our program (click here to access this information). Do not use the emergency contact information for local contacts unless you really have an emergency. Telephoning or emailing our emergency contacts for reasons other than an emergency is inappropriate. Please use the following contacts only in an extreme emergency...
- U.S. Department of State's Citizen Emergency Center: (202) 647-5225. The Department of State will relay any message to the Embassy in the country in which program participants are traveling. Embassy personnel will try to locate your student, pass on urgent messages, and, consistent with the Privacy Act, report back.
- Contact the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate nearest to your student's study abroad location. Contact information for Embassies and Consulates is listed on each program's web page.
*Remember that students may not be reachable during the daytime and that there may be a time difference. Check here to see what time it is in your student's study abroad location (http://times.clari.net.au/) . Be prepared to leave a message at the hotel, with the host family, with the language institute, or even at the U.S. Consulate.
