Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), Summer Faculty Seminars

Purpose

Understanding the need for Colleges and Universities to internationalize, CIEE has developed Faculty Seminars in order to stimulate academic initiatives towards that goal. These seminars are 1-2 weeks in length and explore international issues through lectures, site results and academic interchange with overseas colleagues. Afterwards, faculty return to their campuses poised to incorporate their experience into curricula, course design, and internationalization at an institution-wide level. Applicants from all academic disciplines or administrative areas are encouraged to apply. Deadline for application is March 15th.
