Developing & Leading a Program


As a faculty or academic staff member who wishes to take a group of students abroad, either on a credit-bearing or non-credit program, you have a variety of resources available to you:

  • Visit with an international coordinator in your college to learn what is required of a Program Director and what is involved in writing a program proposal. If you are not part of an academic college, please contact the Study Abroad Center. 
  • Read the guidelines for preparing a proposal and meeting deadlines for submission as well as policies and other valuable information on the Education Abroad Committee’s website.
  • Consider having Project Assist help with the logistics of your program, freeing you to focus your attention on academics and student preparation; contact the Study Abroad Center at for more information.
  • Participate in the Program Director Training.

If your program has been approved to run, please complete the Travel Registration, which also includes Program Director Training.
