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
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.

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 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. 

There will be two workshops held this semester to assist faculty in developing and planning short-term study abroad programs.

The first workshop, to be held February 6, will familiarize faculty with the program planning and development process, proposal submission, safety & security measures, risk management, best practice, as well as other relevant topics. A panel of faculty members who have successfully lead programs abroad will share their experience and suggestions. 

The second workshop, to be held April 11, is being led by William P. Hoye, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of IES Abroad.  Mr. Hoye is a leading scholar, legal mind and experienced higher education administrator who regularly offers these workshops at college and universities nationwide  This interactive workshop will focus on legal and risk management issues relevant to those wishing to take students abroad for short-term international experiences. 

  • Wednesday, February 6, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
  • Thursday, April 11, 2:00-4:00 p.m., location TBD

Light refreshments will be provided at both workshops.  Please note that these will present different information, and thus those interested in leading student groups abroad are encouraged to attend both sessions.

If you are interested in attending either workshop, please RSVP to Rachel Cullenen in the OIP at or 274-1676.
