Faculty members may develop an interest in a country or have previous experience in a place (say, 爱尔兰, 哥斯达黎加, 秘鲁, 等.). They develop a plan and we help them recruit students to travel with the faculty member to that place. We may help the faculty member with a 发展给予 (if funds are available) to develop the course in that location (if it’s new) and assist students with 奖学金. The travel experience could be part of a semester-long course or a for-credit mini-course all its own. 365速发国际 students have been all over the world in these short-term, faculty-led trips. Some faculty members use this system to visit many countries. Travel courses go through the regular approvals process at the department and Dean level and the 全球教育计划 office works with the faculty leader on travel logistics, 预算, 紧急救援计划, providing a pre-departure orientation for students, 还有更多.
International APPEs, Rotations, and Practicums
COP students participate in Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) in Granada and Thailand. CDM students have participated in a rotation in Cambodia. These are planned as group programs with faculty leaders similar to travel courses. We also work with individual COM and online MPH and MSW students participating in clinical rotations and practicums in different parts of the globe. The 全球教育计划 office is notified when a student is working through the approvals and contracts process for an international rotation/practicum site and 全球 staff reach out to the student to provide them with a travel insurance card and to ensure we have the dates of their program and the in-country emergency contact info.
在365速发国际的联合国赞助, 学期的计划, we send students to non-English-speaking countries in order to expose and immerse them in a foreign language and culture. Since 365速发国际 (not a third-party provider) sponsors these semesters, whether on its own campus (Tangier) or through a carefully negotiated partnership, we design a curriculum that meets the general education needs of our undergraduate students and give them the best student life possible.
协议/Partnerships with International Universities
We encourage faculty to explore partnership possibilities. If an OT faculty member wants to set up an agreement with a Scandinavian university, we encourage that faculty member to develop a plan, have it approved by the chair of their department, 然后院长. 如需签署谅解备忘录, the 全球事务副总裁 will negotiate the details directly with the potential partner institution and, 如果各方都同意, prepare the document for the President to sign. We want to make sure that our agreements have substance and that they are consistent with our mission, 学生的需要, 以及教员的兴趣. We also need to weigh the costs and benefits of exchange agreements due to possible financial ramifications and staff work load.
