Eagles Abroad Program Faculty Application

Leading an Eagles Abroad Program

Eagles Abroad programs are designed for faculty with an interest in teaching a UNT course abroad. This type of faculty led program takes place at a pre-arranged location in collaboration with an international host institution's summer offerings.  With departmental support, UNT faculty are invited to apply to teach their course in the available locations. This program model is perfect for new faculty leaders or those who do not have strong experience in the host country as there is very strong on the ground support via the host institution. 

When considering teaching on an Eagles Abroad program, faculty should carefully consider the course to be offered.  An ideal course has a large population of UNT students enrolled each semester, is required for one or more degree plans, makes sense in an international context, and lends itself to teaching abroad in intensive format.  Courses with a high failure rate, with a very small enrollment when taught on campus, or which require highly specialized equipment are not suitable for Eagles Abroad. 

The Study Abroad Office (SAO) encourages interested faculty to contact the Faculty Led Program Coordinator, Kathryn Conrad, for a consultation prior to submitting a proposal.

UNT Standards of Good Practice for Study Abroad 

The University of North Texas' study abroad practices are based upon the Forum on Education Abroad's Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad and Code of Ethics for Education Abroad. These documents provide a strong foundation for the development of academically sound programs and successfully guide educators through each stage of the international experience. For specific guidance on faculty led programs, please refer to the Forum on Education Abroad's Guide to Leading Short-Term Education Abroad Programs


Faculty Leader Handbook FY21

Faculty Led Program Handbook and Proposal Timeline 

The Faculty Led Program Handbook governs all types of faculty led programming. The handbook is designed to prepare faculty for this responsibility of leading students abroad. It is intended to guide both first-time and continuing faculty leaders through the entire process. Eagles Abroad program leaders have the benefit of increased support from the on-site institution and less responsibilities when designing the program than those leading under the traditional faculty led program model. SAO is responsible for establishing the international partnership and arranging transfer credit (if applicable) while the faculty leader is responsible for promoting the program to meet enrollment requirements, teaching the course, and providing pastoral care while abroad.

SAO will be your partner throughout your time as a faculty leader, and this handbook will help you learn more about the resources available to you through our office and dedicated staff. Please review the handbook and contact the Study Abroad Office if you have any questions about completing the program proposal.
