Laying the Groundwork


Curriculum Development 

A solid learning plan places a priority on the academic learning outcomes determined by the destination(s). The plan should address the goals of providing

  • meaningful academic content,
  • opportunities for personal growth, and
  • improved cultural awareness.


Program Development Grant

Familiarity with the program destination is essential. Matching grants are available through DELO to support faculty professional development. A site visit rubric improves your assessment to make sure you use your time effectively. Faculty leaders use the post-site visit report to develop the program.

Step 1 — Start by reviewing the Study Away Administrative Manual so you have an idea of how this all works.

Step 2— Complete the Program Development Grant Request.

Step 3 - Meet with Study Away Director to review your site visit plan.
