Leading a Program Away
One of the most challenging, and quite often most rewarding, pursuits of an educator's career is leading a group of students on a study abroad experience. International Education encourages faculty members from all academic departments to consider developing a study abroad course. Please International Education for a copy of the EC International and Off-Campus Programs Administrative Policies Handbook, which contains additional information regarding how to develop and lead a program abroad. The Director of International Education would be happy to assist faculty members who would like to propose a new course.
Suggested Timeline for Proposing a Course Abroad
- Before proposing a course, the faculty member acquires expertise in the places students will be visiting
- In March, at least twenty-one months prior to the course being offered, the faculty member submits Intent to Offer form to the Director of International Education
- September 15, at least fifteen months prior to the course being offered, the faculty member submits the International Education Course Proposal to the Director of International Education and Off-Campus Programs and to the Alternative Delivery Committee for approval
