Providence College is committed to providing its students with a range of educational opportunities to encounter, to study about, and to understand our increasingly globalized world.  Short-term, faculty-lead spring recess and summer education abroad programs constitute two such opportunities.

Faculty at Providence College are encouraged to consider carefully whether, and how, a short term education abroad program might enhance their undergraduate teaching and/or their academic research interests.  With appropriate planning, faculty will be able to develop and lead a program that will provide students with both a solid academic experience as well as a wide-ranging exposure to cultures different from their own.

The Faculty Guide and supplemental forms below are intended as an efficient, but not exhaustive, overview of the essential tasks involved in developing a short-term education abroad program.  For additional assistance on appropriate procedures, forms, and resources to meet the goals of your program, the Center for International Studies is glad to assist.
