Faculty Forums

In Fall 2012, the Office of International Programs introduced its Faculty Forum: Opportunities Abroad series. These events help faculty and staff navigate the international opportunities available for them and their students. With such topics like internal and external funding sources, leading effective study abroad programs, and introduction to global classrooms, these events utilize real faculty experiences to promote international partnerships.
