Faculty Overview 

Faculty-Led Programs allow students to gain a innovative educational experience that can lead to better grades, faster completion rates and earn a higher starting salary. However, leading a program can be just as an impactful experience for the faculty as well. Through a real-world setting, faculty are able to connect with their students and their curriculum in a way that isn't possible when in the classroom. It becomes a rewarding experience that transforms the learning environment from obligation to independence.   

Developing a faculty-led program, short term (2 to 10 weeks) is a continuous process that involves early discussions as well as timely completion of a detailed proposal application packet. The general recommendation is to begin these steps at minimum 3 months before the proposal submission deadline for that academic year. 

The complete implementation process of an approved faculty-led program typically takes at least 12 months from start to finish. This includes time for recruitment, finalizing logistics, student preparation, and completing pre-departure and post program requirements.
