Invitation to Faculty to Develop Faculty-Led Courses and Programs

The Office of Study Abroad invites faculty from across the University to consider developing a faculty-led study abroad course or program. The Office facilitates the proposal process as well as the logistics of the courses and is ready to assist interested faculty in developing study abroad courses and programs.

For abroad courses or programs planned for spring 2024 or summer 2024, the deadline for proposals for faculty-led study abroad courses or programs is August 7, 2023. This deadline is both for new courses or programs as well as repeat courses or programs. 

Requirements for proposals include 1) approval from both the Dean and Department Chair, 2) a provisional syllabus (if proposal is faculty-led abroad courses, and 3) a detailed provisional budget. Please refer to the Faculty-Led Program checklist for neccessary steps during the proposal process and review the Guide to Faculty-Led Programs  which explains various policies and procedures for faculty taking students abroad.  Please contact the Office of Study Abroad for the program proposal form and budget template. 


After program approval (in the academic year that the program will be going abroad):

  • Participate in Faculty Led Workshops (Recruitment, finances, risk managment)
  • Attend the Spring Faculty Director Workshop 

Note: The Study Abroad Office has modeled the approval process on the recommendations of the Forum on Education Abroad Standards of Good Practice for Short-Term Education Abroad Programs
