Proposing a Faculty-Led Program

We look forward to discussing your plans and ideas and assisting you with your program development along the way. If you are proposing a program for the first time, please contact Tanya Kramer to set up a time to discuss your plans and address any preliminary questions that you may have.

Please complete the Fac-Led Proposal.docx if you are planning to lead a program during the 2014/15 academic year.

Preliminary Draft Proposals for the 2014/15 academic year are due June 1, 2014. The draft should be emailed to and have completed information in the following sections: General Program Information, Marketing Information, and Student Information. 

The Final, Signed Proposal is due July 1, 2014, as we will be printing individual program brochures and updating the website, financial aid, and application information throughout the summer.

As you are planning your program, you will find the
Faculty-Led Handbook to be very helpful, but please do not hesitate to contact Tanya Kramer with questions.

Thank you for your dedication to expanding international education opportunities for our students!
