Support and Development of International Programs
The Study Abroad Office welcomes the continued involvement of UofM faculty and advisors in our efforts to promote international education on campus. Faculty and Advisors are encouraged to support the activities of the Study Abroad Office by helping with the academic advising, recruitment, selection, and orientation of study abroad students. UofM faculty also serve on study abroad committees to help strengthen and enhance existing programs.
UofM faculty may participate in international programs in the following ways:
- Serve as Faculty Program Directors for summer study abroad programs
- Participate in a faculty exchange program at one of our partner institutions abroad
- Serve in various campus-wide capacities to help develop and support international programs
- Apply for a Fulbright or other international grants to spend a semester or academic year abroad

Faculty-Led Short Term Program Opportunities
Faculty are encouraged to develop new courses to teach abroad during the summer terms. We currently sponsor summer programs in Italy, Belize, China, England, Germany, Ghana and several other countries. The Study Abroad Office works closely with faculty in designing summer abroad programs. Interested faculty may complete and submit a study abroad proposal form as well as a non-traditional course offering request form.
Faculty-led program proposals are reviewed by a Proposal Review Committee. To submit or renew a faculty-led program proposal please click on one of the following.
