Faculty and Advisors

Thank you for your interest in promoting internationalization at NDSU by not only offering your support to students who study abroad, but also by your interest in creating a faculty-led program. Please see the following informational resources:

Study Abroad Tips for Academic Advisors

Here are some helpful tips for academic advisors who are working with study abroad students: Tips for Academic Advisors.pdf.

Proposing a Faculty-Led Program

We look forward to discussing your plans and ideas and assisting you with your program development along the way. The Faculty-Led Course Proposal must be completed in full by May 15th, 2015 in order for the program to take place during the 2015-16 academic year. It has been our experience that programs are more successful when they follow this timeline for preparation. The proposal can be completed fully online and includes detailed information as part of the instructions for each section to help as you complete the proposal. Only the online proposal will be accepted for programs that will be conducted during the 2015-16 academic year. Please feel free to start an application to review the requirements as you can withdraw your application at any time.

To begin, please click the "Start Proposal" button below and login using your secure NDSU login (the one you use for Blackboard). The proposal asks for an itinerary as part of the initial steps, please just put in any dates and any location to move past that point. It is a system feature that is not relevant to the proposal process used by our office.

You may complete the proposal in any order, but if you are working with a provider, it is recommended that you request a quote earlier rather than later because the quote process may take some time. Please let Tanya Kramer know if the provider will not have the quote ready by the May 15th deadline. We understand that it may take more time, especially for new programs.



Please contact Tanya Kramer with any questions about the proposal or about leading a program.

Proposing an Exchange Agreement

If you would like to propose a new exchange agreement with an institution abroad, please complete the following form (Viability Assessment for New Exchange Agreement.docx) to have the exchange be considered by the Study Abroad Advisory Committee (SAAC). The SAAC will meet once per semester in November and April to review any new proposals that have been submitted. The committee consists of the following members: Alicia Kauffman, Director of International Student and Study Abroad Services; Lisa Hauck, Director of Global Outreach; Tanya Kramer, Assistant Director of Study Abroad; Jeanne Hageman, Director of the International Studies Major; Newell Wright, Director of the Center for Global Initiatives; and Debby Wichmann, Senior Liaison in Registration and Records.
