UNT-International and the Study Abroad office works in concert with Faculty Leaders to create safe, geographically unique, academically sound, and fiscally responsible programs. The offices provides guidance regarding best practices for summer study abroad, assists with logistical arrangements, and creates and manages program budgets in conjunction with faculty leaders. Study Abroad leadership and advising staff recruit student participation, review student applications, manage all liability documents, and provide regular enrollment updates to faculty leaders. The office also oversees billing and financial transactions, offers student advising and pre-departure orientation sessions and provides emergency support to faculty leaders while abroad.
STUDY ABROAD HANDBOOK 2019-20 CHANGES
The updated Faculty Leader Handbook for 2019-20 programs is now available. Under the direction of the Vice Provost and Dean of International Affairs Dr. Pia Wood, a task force of associate and assistant deans from each college reviewed the academic and programmatic rules for faculty led programs to ensure consistency across colleges. Faculty leaders are encouraged to carefully review these changes before moving forward with a proposal. The attached document highlights the primary updates for 2019-20.
