The Office of the Provost, in conjunction with the Office of Global Studies, is now accepting proposals for summer 2018 short-term and fall 2018 embedded study abroad programs. Over the past few years, more faculty have directed short-term study abroad programs than ever before, introducing our students to the world while providing them with a high-impact educational experience. Paris, Rome, and Seville are ideal destinations for faculty-directed programs due to our permanent local staff and established infrastructure, but faculty are encouraged to develop a short-term program nearly anywhere in the world. Your faculty colleagues have directed successful programs in Cuba, Greece, South Africa, Morocco, Argentina, and Guatemala, to name a few.
The deadline for summer and fall 2018 proposals—even if you have directed the same program before—is August 15, 2017. Please visit the Office of Global Studies faculty websitefor program development guidelines, helpful tips, and the faculty-directed program proposal form, as well as an array of internal and external faculty resources.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule a planning meeting, please contact Gregory Bruhn, Assistant Director of Academics and Short-Term Programs in the Office of Global Studies, at 718-990-1951; firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winter 2019 short-term and spring 2019 embedded travel course program proposal deadline is March 15, 2018, so feel free to contact the Office of Global Studies in Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall on the Queens campus, or Campus Center, Room B-18, on the Staten Island campus, if you would like to get a head start!
Faculty from The Peter J. Tobin College of Business conducting Global Destination Courses should contact Lina Cajiao-Quiroz (email@example.com) or Linda Sama, Ph.D., (firstname.lastname@example.org) for specific deadlines, proposal forms, and general information.
* Please note that whether you want to plan a new course or modify an existing one, you must have the proposal form (including the course syllabus, course schedule, and program itinerary) approved and signed by your department chair, the dean of your college, and, where necessary, the appropriate faculty council.
