Proposal Process and Deadlines

Faculty-led study abroad programs offer a unique academic experience abroad. Share your area of expertise with students in a new setting, and inspire students through learning experiences beyond the classroom. The Office of Global Engagement and the Study Abroad team can help you develop a program that will influence both you and the students for years to come.

Faculty-Led Program PhotoDevelop a Program

Faculty, departments and Global Engagement/Study Abroad team work together to develop programs. Consider your academic area, cultural competencies for student development, activities you would like to pursue, destination(s), and logistics. Discuss your ideas with your department head and the study abroad program director for guidance on how to proceed. It typically takes 12-15 months to develop a new program.
