Faculty Led Program Proposal Forms

2018-2019 Faculty-Led Education Abroad Program Proposals

This past year, Appalachian offered over 60 faculty-led education abroad programs in 30+ countries! 

Thanks to your personal commitment of time and energy, combined with your academic and international expertise, about 700 students are gaining an invaluable education abroad experience each year!

Faculty-led education abroad programs offer enriching experiences for both student participants and faculty leaders. The Office of International Education and Development (OIED) would like to encourage you to consider leading a program this coming 2018-2019 academic year. By leading an international program, you can help Appalachian students gain a hands-on international perspective in your field of study while fostering their awareness and understanding of an increasingly diverse and global world. As a program leader, you also benefit from a stimulating and rewarding teaching experience abroad.

Our mission at OIED is to work together with faculty and academic departments to develop an international educational experience abroad for Appalachian students and to assist prospective program leaders in developing new programs. First-time program leaders should contact Mark Hagen (hagenm@appstate.edu, 828-262-8034) to arrange for a mandatory pre-proposal consultation. The same applies to repeat program leaders developing a new program. Please refer to the links below to consult the online Guide for Proposal Writing and to retrieve the Program Proposal Form. All faculty-led, credit-bearing programs involving Appalachian students abroad must be approved by the Office of International Education and Development (OIED) after review by the Faculty Advisory Committee.


Proposal Deadlines -(by 5pm in the Office of International Education and Development) - As proposals need to be reviewed by the Chair and Dean of the College to meet the OIED deadlines listed below proposals need to be submitted to the Dean's Office at least 2 weeks before the OIED proposal deadline.
