SHORT-TERM International Programs (SIP) Information

One of the best introductions to study abroad for students is through our faculty-led programs. These Short-Term International Programs (SIPs) can be offered in a variety of countries and fulfill gen ed, major/minor or elective credit.

Tenured, tenure-track or continuing lecturer faculty should download and review the faculty director handbook (see left column) and contact the International Programs Director, Sarah Egerer (ext. 4065), to discuss the program. Faculty will complete a SIP information form (also left column) by September 15.

Faculty are encouraged to apply for a SIP Development Grant to make a site visit to the host country a year prior to offering the course. The grant competition is announced by email each fall, or check the IP faculty webpage  periodically. 

All faculty who lead Short-Term International Programs are invited to participate in the fall International Opportunities Fair and attend a preparation session in the spring.
