Faculty & Staff Information
Whether you are already faculty and staff involved with undergraduate global education at UNC or are thinking about developing a program, this section is for you.
The Center for International Education-Study Abroad program provides academic and logistical support for international projects for departments, faculty/staff, and students at UNC. Together we are able to offer UNC students transformational experiences that will last throughout their lifetime and will change the way they think forever. The CIE-Study Abroad Office stands committed to providing assistance for a successful experience for all. Here you will find resources that will assist you with promoting and advising for study abroad, as well as how to submit ideas for a new global program--short-term or long-standing.
The field of international education has seen the term "study abroad" expand greatly in recent history. No longer does the term accurately encompass the scope of international experiences that students desire and are available to them. The changing economy has greatly impacted what is required of today's graduates. Study abroad has gone beyond the traditional classroom-based exchanges, direct enrollments, and faculty-led programs. Students want more education abroad opportunities, which take shape in internships, research, practicum, service learning, and alternative break programs. As you work within your departments and with cross-campus partners, we hope you will promote Education Abroad and integrate these modes of learning into your UNC curriculum.
The Study Abroad program wants to collaborate with faculty and staff members with all ideas for international opportunities for UNC students. We are here to assist faculty with program development, orientations, student advising, health and safety planning, transfer credit articulations, program marketing, choosing a customized faculty-led program provider as well as general support for promoting education abroad.
