Faculty-Led Programs

The Office of Education Abroad works closely with faculty on planning, developing, and implementing faculty-led education abroad programs. Faculty-led education abroad programs are those in which faculty members take students on international travel experiences as part of FIU courses or as courses in themselves. These programs tend to be short-term, many of them 2 to 6 weeks in duration and taking place over the summer or semester breaks. 

If you are interested in leading a study abroad program, you will need to work with your academic department and college as well as submit a proposal to the Office of Education Abroad.

In order to submit this proposal, please carefully review the information in the Faculty-Led Education Abroad Program Proposal Process section of this website that includes all the forms and information to prepare for your programs abroad. Also, the OEA holds several annual meetings for faculty directors: a meeting in August before the beginning of the school year, workshops for prospective faculty directors, and emergency procedures meetings in the fall and spring semesters.

The OEA welcomes any questions, suggestions, or concerns that you may have at this time. Please feel free to reach a member of our team at (305) 348-1913 or edabroad@fiu.edu or visit us at the MMC Campus in SASC 230. We will gladly help ensure the successful development and implementation of your academic program abroad!
