The Office of International Programs (OIP) would like to invite all administrators, faculty and staff members to attend our upcoming workshops designed to assist in the development of short-term study abroad programs.

The first two workshops are offered as a two-part series, breaking the information down into shorter segments.  The first, to be held Tuesday, September 16, will focus on elements of program planning related to risk management and student safety. The second of the two-part series will be held on Thursday, September 25, and will focus on logistics of program development and proposal submission.

The last workshop, to be held Friday, September 26, goes over all of the material presented in the two individual one-hour workshops.  This session will familiarize faculty with the program planning and development process, proposal submission logistics, safety & security measures, risk management, best practice, as well as other relevant topics, and will leave time for discussion and questions.

Times for the workshops are as follows; all workshops will be held in the Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center.

  • Risk Management and Student Safety in Short-term Study Abroad ProgramsTuesday, September 16; 12:10-1:00
