Faculty-Led Education Abroad Programs

Faculty-Led Overview and Manual

Short-term Faculty-led programs offer the opportunity for a group of students to explore the world with a BGSU faculty member in a specific discipline and country of interest. Faculty-led programs are built by professors who not only teach course content, but act as knowledgeable cultural guides for students. This international experiential learning provides an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in another country while building greater connections with the BGSU instructor and fellow students.

BGSU Education Abroad supports faculty members throughout the development process to ensure that the international study experience is successful. Faculty are urged to consult with Education Abroad, in International Programs and Partnerships as soon as they know they may want to develop a new program. Please contact Michelle Ploeger, Coordinator of Education Abroad, at mploege@bgsu.edu to review the manual, timeline, processes, and next steps. The Guidelines for Developing Faculty-Led Programs Abroad is a helpful resources for faculty and staff involved in faculty-led programming.
