Faculty Leading Study Abroad Programs

One of the most effective ways to get students interested in study abroad is through the direct encouragement of their professors and instructors.

Faculty Short-Term Teaching Abroad Application

University of North Alabama has academic departments offering short-term faculty-led programs in over half a dozen countries. The Office of International Affairs promotes the Study Abroad Program by participating in SOAR, hosting the Study Abroad Fair in the Fall semester, and coordinating the Study Abroad Pre-Departure Meeting in the Spring semester. The Vice Provost and Director of the Center for Global Engagement are available as resources should a faculty member want assistance with the program design or sounding board during the exploration process.

Information about how faculty members can develop and lead a study abroad program maybe obtained from the Chair of their Academic Department and their Departmental Dean. Interested faculty may obtain required paperwork and learn:

  • application procedures
  • approval process

Insurance Verification, Wavier & Release and iNext Health Insurance Information forms must be notarized and on file for each participant before leaving the country for the Study Abroad program.






The Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) reports 96 percent of students surveyed said studying abroad increased their self-confidence.
