Develop a Faculty-Led Program

The World is your Classroom

Facilitating a faculty-led program is a rewarding way to academically engage with students outside of the traditional classroom setting. The experience is transformative for both students and faculty.

Faculty-led programs (FLPs) are academic courses offered off-campus during the Summer, Spring Break, or Winter J Term. Much like the courses you teach on-campus, students will earn academic credit (typically 1-4 credits per program).

The Office of International Education will provide you the support you need throughout the development, preparation and implementation phases. The new proposal process (for 2023-2024), will now contain two phases. Basic information will be required for Phase 1. For programs approved to move to Phase 2, more detailed information regarding site visits, on-site logistical support, detailed itineraries, risk management, and budgets will be required.

The 2023 faculty-led program proposal application cycle is now open! Phase 1 of the application process is due May 24, 2023.
