Faculty Leading Study Abroad Programs
One of the most effective ways to get students interested in study abroad is through the direct encouragement of their professors and instructors.
The Office of International Affairs currently works with several departments to offer short-term faculty-led programs in over half a dozen countries. Information about how faculty members can develop and lead a study abroad program is found in the Short-Term Teaching Proposal, linked below.
