Here are ten ways to be an internationally-engaged faculty member, and how the International Center can help.
All study abroad programs must go through a program approval process and follow the guidelines established by MU. The MU chancellor have assigned the associate vice provost for international initiatives/director of the International Center the responsibility of reviewing all proposed study abroad programs involving MU students.
All MU study abroad programs should follow basic guidelines to ensure that responsible standards are employed in the development and implementation of the programs. All MU programs are required to follow the program approval process.
To be effective, study abroad programs should:
At the end of the program, students should feel that they have been fully engaged in an academic process. This should imply an academic rigor similar to what they would expect had they been enrolled for a similar number of credit hours on campus. However, students abroad are, in many cases, involved in the learning process throughout the day. It is recognized that the academic rigor and objectives of a study abroad program are measured by much more than class hours and assigned readings. An appropriate balance of academics and hands-on experiences defines a well-organized and effective study abroad program.
The following policies apply to all study abroad programs at MU.
