Propose a Faculty-led Program

Proposals will be evaluated with input from International Affairs, department heads, and college deans. Please note that all Summer Global Seminars are run on the state-support side and not through Global Campus. Applicants are urged to discuss their proposal and course selection with their department head before submitting a proposal to International Affairs.

Many factors are considered in approving programs including summer faculty instructional costs, risk management and the level of staffing and resources available.
