Global Activities Registry Collection
The Global Activities Registry (GAR) is Penn’s central resource for
collecting information about the travel plans and activities of faculty,
staff, and students preparing to travel abroad for academic, educational,
clinical, research, or University business purposes.
The Registry has two sections, one for Group Coordinators
and one for Travelers.
Group Coordinators: In this section, those responsible for organizing
and coordinating group travel enter general information about their program
Travelers: In this section, individual travelers and participants in
an organized group enter their travel details, including personal and
emergency contact information, passport information, itinerary, and transportation
details. International SOS, the organization that provides Penn students,
faculty, and staff with international medical, security, and travel assistance,
including emergency evacuation, is notified automatically of travel plans.
