International Scholarly Assignment Program

In keeping with its mission of internationalizing Appalachian State University, the Office of International Education and Development (OIED) sponsors international scholarly assignment programs to develop and/or strengthen faculty global competencies. 

These programs are intended to provide Appalachian faculty members with the knowledge needed to help them infuse global issues into the courses they teach and integrate study abroad into the curricula at Appalachian, while providing them with collaborative research and teaching opportunities abroad.  

Appalachian exchange faculty members also gather information and provide advice to OIED about the programs and courses available at host institutions, as well as student welfare issues.
