Program Planning and Implementation
Taking Illinois students abroad is a rewarding experience for both faculty members and students. The Study Abroad Office is glad to work with faculty as they plan their course abroad. We can help you consider issues such as budgeting, location of program (especially by considering complementing placement of other programs), on-site logistics, orientation, course delivery, student selection, outreach, and more.
As explained in the U of I Provost's Education Abroad and International Travel Policies, all faculty leading groups abroad are required to attend at least one Risk Management meeting a year.
Each meeting will cover:
Health & Safety
Important documents and forms
Brief financial reminders
Below you'll find more information to assist you in the planning and implementation process.
Initiating New International Exchanges and Other On-Going Programs
Faculty or staff considering starting new, on-going programs or exchanges should consult Dr. Moira Rogers at the Study Abroad Office, or their college study abroad representative for guidance about setting up a new program. Those considering offering a course abroad or study tour please see above.
