Faculty and staff can get involved with the Office of Learning Abroad in a number of different ways! This includes promoting and supporting study abroad efforts on SUU campus, leading SUU students through programs abroad, submitting globally based articles and research, and other opportunities. Learn more about how to get involved below or contact the Office of Learning Abroad directly for more information. 

Lead a Program Abroad 

Lead a student study abroad program!  SUU faculty and staff members can organize trips for students to run over summer, spring, or winter break. Summer programs range from 2-4 weeks long and offer between 3-6 course credits. Shorter 1-week programs, called Cultural Immersions, are non-credit bearing and have subsidized program costs for students.

Staff members who do not teach courses may lead Cultural Immersion trips. Faculty members may lead either program type. Have an exciting idea for a program?  Submit a program proposal!

Submit or View International Research 

The Office of Learning Abroad maintains a database of articles published by SUU faculty and staff on global topics. We encourage SUU faculty and staff to submit their publication information via the “Submit Research” link, and we encourage all visitors interested in global issues to click “View Research” for a searchable list of publications.
