Faculty-led programs consist of on-campus class meetings during the academic year, followed by a travel component of 1-4 weeks in length during a term break (e.g. winter break, spring break, or summer).

Faculty-led programs are an ideal option for students looking for a well-supported, group-based, short-term international experience. 

Faculty-led program offerings vary from year to year, so be sure to check this page, as well as our program search, for an up-to date list of upcoming programs

For additional information about faculty led programs, students can email or set up an appointment with Dan Colleran, Global Experiences Coordinator.

If you are a faculty member interested in proposing a new program, please visit our Faculty and Staff Resources page.
