If you’re interested in providing students off-campus learning opportunities, read on.
WKU’s Extended Learning and Outreach (DELO) partners with individual faculty members, their departments, and colleges to develop and administer Study Away and Faculty-Led Study Abroad programs.
A straightforward way to differentiate the two programs is… Study Away means “No Passport Required” while Faculty-Led Study Abroad programs do require a passport.
DELO provides the administrative support for both programs so you can focus on creating an effective academic experience for your students.
DELO is your first stop for developing a Study Away program. In fact, Study Away was created to complement faculty-led study abroad as a means to offer off-campus learning opportunities to more students. Study Away is designed to provide a full range of administrative and financial support services to faculty program leaders.
DELO is also your first stop to develop your Faculty-Led Study Abroad program. Building on the Study Away model, DELO now collaborates with Study Abroad & Global Learning and the Office of International Programs to support your learning objectives that advance your department and college internationalization goals.
Consider this a call for program proposals.
Whether you’re a first-timer or veteran, now is the time to start your program development for summer 2013 as well as winter 2014 programs. We always recommend that students plan ahead when deciding on the right study abroad program, so we encourage faculty program leaders to do the same in order to make each program the best it can be.
