Faculty-Led Short-term Study Abroad Programs

  • Faculty Peer Mentoring Program for Study Abroad - This program was established to support the development of experienced program leaders who can lead exceptional study abroad programs of great value to CCU's students. The program is designed to benefit Coastal Carolina University faculty members who have an interest in developing and leading an international travel study program abroad, but who lack experience in-country in the particular host country/countries they would like to lead programs and/or they lack experience in leading student travel groups abroad with Coastal Carolina University. Applications and information are available on the CCU Forms page, with a deadline for application of Dec. 2, 2016.
  • Faculty Study Abroad Program Guide- This guide provides background and step-by-step guidelines for faculty interested in developing and leading study abroad programs and will now be housed on the CCU FORMS page.
  • Short-term Study Abroad Program Support - The Office of International Programs and Services coordinates the review of new and ongoing programs in cooperation with the International Programs Committee of Faculty Senate and handles advertising, centralized online application process, and (for some programs) budget management for study abroad programs, making the faculty member's job a little easier and providing university-wide promotional programming each fall for all short-term study abroad programs. Please reach out to Darcy Coughlan with questions about this process (dcoughlan@coastal.edu).
  • Short-term Study Abroad Program Development Cycle - Each year the Office of International Programs and the International Programs Committee of Faculty Senate welcome new applications and ongoing programs for providing short-term study abroad programs for CCU students.  Additional meeting times and workshops are organized to help faculty in their development of these programs, as well as ongoing coaching.  These sessions are offered through CeTEAL beginning in October so please check that schedule for the next training session.
