Faculty members interested in developing and leading a study abroad program have many resources available to them. The staff in the Office of Education Abroad work with UNC Charlotte faculty members to develop and implement safe, affordable, and quality programming in a variety of locations around the world. There are many considerations and a lot of planning that goes into creating a new program, as well as managing a program on the ground. We encourage faculty to begin the process early and review the resources available throughout the program development process.

Faculty-led programs play an important role in the Office of Education Abroad - find out why you should get involved!
Propose a New Program
The Office of Education Abroad (OEA) works closely with faculty interested in leading a study abroad program. Learn more about proposing a high-quality academic international experience for UNC Charlotte students.
re-PROPOSE An existing PROGRAM
Faculty must submit a proposal for their program every year; however, the online proposal system allows for easy transfer and updating of program information.
MANAGE AN EXISTING PROGRAM
Once a program has been developed, faculty need to start thinking about the implementation process. Learn more about marketing, implementing, and managing an existing faculty-led program.
In some cases funding may be available for application in order to develop a new short term program. Grants and funding are cyclical and offered by a variety of third party partners external to UNC Charlotte. It is important to start planning early, and to check this section of the website frequently for updated opportunities.
