Getting Started

International Programs – Study Abroad appreciates your interest in developing a faculty-led Study Abroad program, and we look forward to assisting you with what will surely be a greatly rewarding opportunity for you and your students.

There is a lot of work involved in developing and conducting a successful faculty-led Study Abroad program. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone. The International Programs – Study Abroad team is here to partner with you and make your program a reality. Below are some guidelines and resources for you to use as you develop your program. For those already done with development, you can skip to the proposal submission section.

As you are thinking about when you might want to lead your program abroad, keep in mind that the development process starts well in advance of actually going abroad. To learn more about things to consider and what is involved, schedule a meeting with Erin Kunert, associate director of Study Abroad Programs. She will go over everything you need to know and help you get started.

The University Travel website is also a good resource for you as you plan.

The International Affairs Committee (IAC) reviews all program proposals. They take many aspects of the program into consideration, including location, cost, health and safety, and other logistical pieces. Approvals for academic credit will be given by the Provost’s office.
