TU short term, faculty-led study abroad programs provide vibrant international experiences for students who cannot commit to study abroad for a semester or year. Faculty-led programs also serve as important venues to internationalize TU faculty, provide opportunities for faculty to conduct scholarly work, and may serve as a starting point for more long-term opportunities. The goal of the proposal process is to:
- Maintain long-standing faculty-led programs that have a history of success,
- Encourage faculty to participate in faculty-led programs,
- Provide an effective and efficient process,
- Provide support to faculty in developing a proposal,
- Encourage faculty new to study abroad to submit proposals, and
- Offer a variety of courses and locations.

The proposal process for faculty-led programs consists of two phases. Phase 1 is a pre-proposal process that includes securing approval for your Dean and Department Chair, approval from the Curriculum Committee, providing a general description of your program, specifying the location(s) and duration, and a general description of the proposed types of activities and assignments. The Phase 2 process will include the Phase I information plus clarifying academic goals/course content, including how sites are utilized to enhance the learning experience, and a syllabus, itinerary, and preliminary budget.
Both Phase 1 and Phase 2 proposals will be evaluated by the Center for Global Engagement and the International Leadership Council. Faculty whose proposals were accepted during Phase 1 are invited to complete Phase II by submitting a syllabus, budget, and recruitment strategies. Being invited to submit to Phase II does not guarantee that your proposal will be accepted for 2023. All courses are required to have a local host, partner, or program provider.
