Lead a Faculty-Led Program

Faculty-Led Programs are short-term study abroad experiences led by UIW faculty members. These short-term programs are a valuable tool in UIW’s internationalization of the curriculum and contribute to UIW Study Abroad's goal of providing affordable international experiences to our students. In utilizing services from UIW-Strasbourg, sister schools, UIW’s Mexico campuses or third-party providers, faculty are welcome to develop and facilitate Faculty-Led Programs as approved by their dean and the UIW Study Abroad Office. 

Find out more about how to start planning your Faculty-Led Program by attending a 'How to Lead a Faculty-Led Program 101' session or set an appointment with the Study Abroad Coordinator, Brooke Paynter.

Grant and Incentive applications are available for financial support.
