Thinking of teaching a course abroad in 2013-14?

11/09/2012

Contributed by Rachel Cullenen

Submission deadlines for short-term, faculty-led courses to be taught abroad in 2013-14 are approaching.  Any faculty member interested in leading such a course abroad during the winter session of 2014, spring break 2014, or summer 2014 is encouraged to be in touch with the Office of International Programs to begin discussing ideas for such programs.

Proposal process
The first step in proposing to travel abroad with students is to complete our online intent form.  This gives the Office of International Programs (OIP) an idea of what you have in mind, and will allow us to begin the preliminary work of assisting you in designing a viable program.  

The next step is the full proposal form, That should be submitted along with a budget breakdown of the program, using the Excel spreadsheet template.  

Proposal submission deadlines
We are transitioning to a new schedule of proposal deadlines for the next academic year. For programs being run in 2013-14 and thereafter, the intent form is due 15 months prior to program implementation, and the full proposal is due 12 months prior to program implementation.  

Winter 2014 programs
Intent form due: September 30, 2012
Proposal due: December 31, 2012

Spring Break 2014 programs
Intent form due: December 14, 2012
Proposal due: March 15, 2013 

Summer 2014 session programs

Intent form due: February 1, 2013
Proposal due: May 31, 2013

We are happy to meet with faculty and staff individually to discuss questions or review the program design and proposal process.  Please contact Rachel Cullenen at rcullenen@ithaca.edu with questions or to schedule a time to meet.

Faculty and staff members can find information on College policy and procedure regarding international travel with students in the publication Procedures for Developing and Implementing Short-term Study and Educational Travel Abroad at Ithaca College.
