The online faculty application for teaching abroad is open between mid-November and mid-January each year. For more information

Program Leader Materials
The Study Center Program Leader Policy Guide
and the Non-Study Center Program Leader Policy Guide
outline the responsibilities of the role, including expectations for pastoral care, legal information, communication policies, safety and security policies, and judicial/conduct.
Program leaders also have access to additional materials related to leading a study abroad program, which will be provided to you. We also have a document,
Understanding the Student
Application Process, which is a helpful and brief reminder about communications policies and the student application process.
Program leaders and faculty members are provided logistical information about airfare, shipping, housing, guests, safety information, academic information,
and more in the Faculty Pre-Departure Packets.
In order to be prepared to teach abroad, all faculty members and Program Leaders (regardless of location or years of experience) whose
applications have been accepted must attend a mandatory Faculty Orientation session. This orientation will cover safety and security, current
global issues, as well as how to prepare for going abroad. Orientation date options will be sent to faculty members by email and they must
respond with their preferred date of attendance.
