Call for Faculty to Develop 2023 Study Abroad Programs
In Fall 2020, OGE launched CMU's new model for Faculty-led Study Abroad Programs. It is a powerful statement of CMU's commitment to providing transformative global educational experiences to students and bringing our programs in line with standards in the field of Education Abroad. The model promotes the integration of academic, global, intercultural, and integrative and adaptive learning outcomes with global mobility to help students develop knowledge, outlooks, and immersive experiences for their life-long journeys as global citizens. Read a white paper on the new model.

The OGE is seeking faculty to collaborate with us to develop study abroad programs for 2023. Interested faculty should contact Dr. Carlos Lopez, Assistant Director of Study Abroad, Faculty-Led Programs, at lopez3ca@cmich.edu.

To assist faculty in this process, OGE will hold a series of virtual workshops to engage with faculty about the outcomes-driven structure of the CMU model for Faculty-led Study Abroad Programs.
