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.

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.

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.

- All courses are required to have a local host, partner, or program provider.
- Faculty and their departments should discuss questions related to teaching loads prior to submitting the program proposal.
