Develop a Faculty-Led Program

Are you interested in leading a short-term study abroad program?

The ideal faculty-led program not only offers students an international experience, but fosters in-depth exploration of an academic topic with an expert in the field. Faculty leaders should have intimate knowledge of the destination that boosts the academic components of the course and facilitates unique access to local sites and culture. The Center for International Education (CIE) is especially seeking programs with staying power that will become permanent courses. Before submitting a proposal, please review the Faculty-led Study Abroad Program FAQs.
