Because of the intensity of the Space Studies Program, Participants, TAs and staff are strongly discouraged from accepting any visitors, including spouses, partners, friends, or family, at any time during the nine-week program. The rationale behind this policy is that the presence of visitors impedes the ability of a participant to share in the same experiences as their colleagues and interferes with their participation and reflection time. For TAs and staff, the presence of visitors interferes with their assigned SSP duties.

Should you wish to host a visitor, please be advised that you are responsible for arranging for your visitor(s)’ accommodations and that ISU will not be able to provide you with assistance in booking accommodations for visitors.
