NEW FACULTY- LED TRAVEL STUDY COURSES

STEP 1:

Discuss: Travel Study possibilities with your Departmental collaborator and relevant Department Chairs. Review: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

 

STEP 2:
Complete the Travel Study Developer Questionnaire before you work on the proposal packet. The Travel Study Developer Questionnaire will assist you in working with the collaborating departments and program provider to craft your travel study course.

 

STEP 3:
Contact the Program Provider ETA and begin working on an itinerary/ budget for your course (if not ETA, and as arranged with Matthew Penkala.) The Travel and External Study Coordinator or Matthew Penkala can help you through this process. If you choose to use a different program provider than ETA, it will rest on you to locate a local ground operator or partnering institution that can assist with the program logistics and facilitation of your course. This new provider will need to complete and submit the Program Provider Request Form.

 

STEP 4:
Complete the Faculty-Led Travel Proposal (includes section for your proposed Budget). Once you have completed the Travel Study Developer Questionnaire and it has been approved by the collaborating department(s), and you have developed a preliminary itinerary and budget with ETA, you are ready to complete the Faculty Led-Travel Study Proposal.

 

STEP 5:
Submit your Faculty-Led Travel Study Proposal and supplemental materials to Matthew Penkala and/or the Travel and External Study Coordinator (submit electronically). This proposal must be approved by the collaborating department(s) Chair(s) in order to be reviewed by the International Education Steering Committee.

 

STEP 6:
International Education Steering Committee and Provost will review the proposal for final approval.
