In Chile there has been an on-going student movement, which began in 2011. The center of these protests has historically been in Santiago, with smaller protests taking place in Valparaiso and Viña del Mar and other cities throughout the country. The protests are peaceful and have not posed a threat to the health and safety of participants. There has been varying degrees of disruption to courses taken with local students at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaíso. Given the upcoming presidential elections, it is likely that there will be demonstrations in the coming months. Students are reminded of ISA's safety protocol and that it is against ISA policy to participate in strikes or demonstrations. We will continue to monitor these events, and make recommendations to our students as needed.
