Faculty-led Program and Grant Proposals

The TU Study Abroad Office welcomes short-term faculty-led program proposals from departments across the university and especially from disciplines underrepresented in study abroad. Each spring interested faculty submit proposals for programs to run in the following year. The Faculty Committee on Study Abroad is instrumental in assessing and selecting faculty leaders based upon the proposed program academic rigor, feasibility, student appeal, variety of disciplines and locations (within one term and across all terms), and appropriateness of course to location.
