Faculty Handbook
Before you move forward with your Global Seminar, please familiarize yourself with the policies and procedures found in our Faculty Handbook. Peruse the "Resources" tab for helpful materials, such as sample budgets, proposals, and timelines.

Proposal
After you learn more about the process, complete the proposal. Please ensure that the information that you provide is accurate and that your responses are thoughtful. The details that you provide will be used to promote your Global Seminar.

As part of your proposal, you must also submit a proposed budget and a draft itinerary. The budget and the itinerary offer the Center for Global Engagement a better sense of the scope of your Global Seminar. It is understood that the budget and itinerary will be altered as logistical arrangements and academic content are determined.

By submitting a proposal, you are making a commitment to the Global Seminar and agree to not terminate the course or withdraw from the program except in an emergency. Please note that late and/or incomplete proposals will be given lower priority than complete proposals submitted on time.

After your submit your proposal, preliminary budget, and proposed itinerary, you will meet with Study Abroad & Off-Campus Programs to identify your timeline for moving forward.

Pre-Departure Support
Students are advised to attend the four Pack+Prep sessions (CGE pre-departure programming) that are offered to students participating in semester-long programs. In the fall semester, the sessions take place in October and November. In the spring semester, the sessions take place in March and April. View our Events page for more information. 

Prior to your departure, CGE will host a mandatory training for your support faculty/staff member and you. You must also attend a Title IX training with Dr. Amanda Kim. 

Re-Entry Support
Your Global Seminar doesn't end with the return flight home. Your students are advised to attend Unpacking (CGE re-entry programming). Please visit our Events page to learn more. You should also be mindful of providing students with opportunities to reflect on their experiences and continue their learning. 

After your Global Seminar, we look forward to your feedback. You will meet with CGE staff to discuss your Global Seminar experiences and the overall process.
