Faculty Development


A number of faculty development opportunities exist through the Office of International Studies. First and foremost are the faculty seminars offered by study abroad program providers. These providers, usually membership-based consortia, rotate both the locations and the subjects of these seminars. Three outstanding options are listed below:

Participation in these seminars is by nomination of the OIS, and places are limited. Please contact the OIS if you are interested.

Faculty also are invited to attend any of the annual education abroad professional conferences with OIS staff. The OIS covers expenses for these conferences, but obvious budgetary constraints mean that, like the faculty development seminars, only a limited number of places are available each year. The primary organizations to which this office belongs are:

Finally, the OIS maintains contacts with an exhaustive network of universities around the world. Please use us as a resource for making contact with those universities, whether for research possibilities, opportunities for publication, or locations for sabbaticals.
