What a Wonderful World: Developing Students as Global Leaders Through Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

Last updated December 13, 2023

Discover how faculty-led study abroad programs can help students from all backgrounds become citizens of the world.

Overview

Faculty-led programs present the most affordable Study Abroad option for all students, many of whom cannot afford to miss a semester of school or the cost of a semester-long program. Faculty-led programs, both domestic and international, can be transformative—not just for students, but also for faculty leaders and host communities. Specifically, these programs can help students and faculty to broaden their world views, which can lead to more holistic and inclusive personal and leadership practices while also having a positive economic and social impact on the host community. While the benefits are numerous, establishing a new program can be a daunting task. During this webcast, we will discuss this process in detail and provide relevant resources to help you to develop a program on your own campus.   

Joining us are two experts in the art of crafting faculty-led programs:  

  • Dr. Sumanth Reddy, from Bowie State University, hopes to inspire other faculty and staff to pursue these shorter, more intensive international and experiential education experiences by sharing his experience with creating both domestic and international faculty-led programs. 
  • Roman Yavich, founder of Learn from Travel, a third-party provider for faculty-led programs, will provide supporting information, resources, and best practices.

Who should attend?

This program is ideal for faculty and staff who are interested in increasing Study Abroad and domestic Study Away programs on their campus.
