Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs
Leading a faculty-led program is a unique opportunity to provide a high-impact, international learning experience for a group of 10-25 students. Explore the resources below for more information about what a faculty-led program proposal entails. Please note that a limited number of programs will be approved each academic year. Each application will be reviewed by the Overseas Program Approval Committee, comprised of staff from OIP and the Provost's office, according to criteria in the instructions and proposal form. Please review the proposal evaluation criteria carefully prior to submitting your proposal, and ensure that each point is clearly addressed within the content of your proposal.
If you would like to submit a proposal, please use the link below to request a Program Proposal Form. The deadline for proposals for 2018-2019 academic year programs is May 15, 2018.
- Review the Faculty-Led Program Handbook. If you are new to proposing faculty-led programs, please contact Brian Johnson, Associate Director of Study Abroad (firstname.lastname@example.org, 773-508-3899) for more information about OIP's Program Development Workshops.
