Faculty members can be some of the most significant influencers to a student’s decision to study abroad. Study Abroad and Away requires ALL students to:
- Develop their plan for study abroad in close cooperation with their faculty advisor
- Consult with their faculty advisor for approval of courses or internships taken while abroad
Additionally, faculty members also serve as unofficial or official advisors for each individual study abroad program. Program advisors meet with individual students about the program, may visit the program from time to time, or help with events and outreach.
- Supervisory: Many of our programs have a research or other active learning component. A student may ask you to be a supervising professor and to sign a research paper agreement. It is important that the student communicate to you the time commitment involved and that both you and the student agree on the exact parameters of the agreement.
- Campus Internationalization: Faculty members can help facilitate the process of re-entry and integrating learning with resources on internationalization in higher education and developing global competence.
Study Abroad and Away actively encourages staff and faculty participation and collaboration at all stages of the study away process. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
