Navigating the waters


Teaching a study abroad course offers unique challenges not faced in the traditional classroom setting. The Forum on Education Abroad provides resources to you to make the most of your program.


Mentors & Guides

  • Department head or chair. It is important to speak with your department head prior to developing the syllabus.
  • Other faculty are great resourses and we can put you contact.

It is important to review the Standards of Conduct for all WKU employees: http://www.wku.edu/policies/docs/148.pdf



Recruiting students is a joint effort among the faculty leaders, the academic departments and colleges, and the Office of Study Abroad & Global Learning.

WKU faculty members have a wide sphere of influence and can generate a lot of interest in your programs. Word-of-mouth enthusiasm can spread among other students, working to your advantage.
