Developing a Faculty-Led Program

Facilitating a Faculty-Led Program is a rewarding way to academically engage with students outside of a traditional classroom. While the preparation and implementation of a program can be time consuming and challenging, the experience can be transformative for students and faculty. The Office of International Education provides guidance and administrative assistance to faculty and staff facilitating a faculty-led program.
