The pages in this section are designed to assist faculty interested in working on Study Abroad programs. A Faculty Led Study Abroad is a short-term (typically one to four weeks, though length can vary) travel course that usually integrates experiential learning at the program site (whether domestic or international) with more traditional classroom experiences and assignments. It may also be non-credit bearing—as in a service-learning alternate spring break program.
Only full-time faculty members may propose and develop a study abroad program. Before doing so, however, you should consult with your department chairperson and the Study Abroad Director to discuss the appropriateness of the program. Adjunct, emeritus, and visiting scholars may co-lead with a full-time faculty member. Full-time staff members in Office of Student Services are eligible to lead non-credit field study or service projects with the approval of the Dean of Student Services.
