    Are you interested in leading a study abroad program? To learn more about executing a program abroad, explore this condensed workflow for a general overview of the process. Please thoroughly review the Guidelines to Design and Implement Faculty/Staff-Led Study Abroad Programs for more details.  



    • A comprehensive proposal is required for faculty and staff who wish to run a program abroad.  
    • The proposal is submitted to the Education Abroad Committee (EAC) and is evaluated using the proposal approval rubric 
    • Preview proposal application questions  
    • EAC proposal approval is valid for two years 
    • For unchanged proposals, a renewal proposal application is required after two years of EAC proposal 
    • A new proposal is required if a program has not run for the past two years or if there have been significant changes to the program (i.e. change of country) 
    • Proposals to lead programs abroad must be submitted by a full-time faculty or staff member. Proposals can be for programs that include coursework, research, civic engagement/service-learning, cultural enrichment, or any combination of these activities.  
    • Credit-bearing study abroad programs are a priority for the Office of International Education. Please review our Credit Bearing Study Abroad document for program model outlines.
