German authorities are reporting that several people are dead following a shooting in a Munich shopping mall. IFSA-Butler does not have programs in Germany, but we are reaching out to our United Kingdom and Ireland summer students to determine if any of them traveled to Germany on their own. We anticipate that it may take several hours to make contact with the majority of students to confirm their safety.
We will continue to monitor this situation and provide any relevant updates. Please contact Renee Lopez, Assistant Director of Health, Safety and Security with any questions or concerns.
