Faculty and Departments Study Abroad

Creating a new study abroad program for your students is an exciting and challenging undertaking. The benefits to faculty members and students are enormous, but require careful planning.

While campus-based study abroad programs can take many forms, the most common is the short-term, summer program. Typically, a faculty member accompanies a group of students to a study center abroad where instruction occurs in an immersion environment. The focus can be on language, specialized major courses, or field work.

In an effort to assist faculty members interested in pursuing this option, the Division of Extended Learning and the Office of Global Education have developed a procedure for new program development.

Starting in 2018, the University Global Affairs Committee has implemented procedures in processing requests for faculty-led programs.

These items can be found below:

As a reminder, deadlines for submitting proposals are as follows:

  • June 1 (January program)
  • October 1 (Spring-break, Summer programs)

Please contact the Executive Director of Global Education if you are interested in developing a study abroad program as early as possible since the review process can take upwards of 3 months.
