Develop a study abroad program
Are you interested in starting your own study abroad
program? We can help you to make this dream a reality.
Faculty-led programs may be offered during winter, spring
break, summer, or the regular academic terms. All faculty expenses are covered
by the program cost.
Details and requirements
There are a number of details to keep in mind as you plan
your faculty-led study abroad program:
- All faculty-led international programs must be
coordinated through us, the Center for International Education (CIE).
- All programs must be for at least one unit of
Northern Arizona University credit.
- Program courses and credits must be pre-approved
by the academic department.
- Funding comes from students to participate, so
the academic department is not usually responsible for any financial support.
- Faculty leading summer programs are paid
according to the summer salary schedule while on the program, based upon rank
and the number of credits offered, as approved by the Office of the Provost.
Please review the Faculty-led Handbook carefully, as it contains information related to all aspects of
faculty-led international programming.
Propose a program
Proposals for new programs must be submitted to the Center
for International Education. Once you are ready to propose a program, read,
complete, and submit these documents according to instructions contained within
Proposals must be signed by your Department Chair or Dean.

There are many resources available to you as you plan your
study abroad program.
You are invited to contact Northern Arizona University
faculty members who have experience with faculty-led programs to gain insight
