Faculty Recommendations for Study Abroad

  • Pac-Rim Specific Application: If a student asks you to complete the faculty recommendation for the Pac Rim program, please do not fill out the online assessment. You need to complete the paper recommendation found in the Pac Rim Application (click on "Puget Sound Application -- PAC RIM" & the recommendation form is the last page).**

New Program Development & Program Additions to current program list

The office of International Programs provides assistance for faculty interested in developing programs, for credit or not for credit.  The Faculty Handbook for Short-term Programs is a guide for proposing a program and the Faculty Responsibilities Handbook for Short-term Programs is an additional resource for faculty.  When proposing new programs or overseas research projects with students, it is recommended that faculty review the study abroad advisory and the travel abroad policy for high-risk areas.

For faculty who would like to add a new third party semester program to the list of supported study abroad programs, faculty can submit their request for a new program by using the New Study Abroad Program Request - Faculty.

International Programs staff will submit new proposals to the faculty-led International Education Committee (IEC) for review and acceptance.
