Faculty Resources

Step 1

March 2024: Center for International Education issues, via e-mail, two documents: “2025 Course Abroad Proposal Form” AND “Proposal Guide for 2025 Course Abroad”

Step 2

April 12, 2024:  Interested faculty members submit the completed Course Abroad Proposal Form to the appropriate Department Chair(s) and copy to Zongxiang Mei in the Center for International Education (zongxiang.mei@ccsu.edu). When approving the faculty to teach the course(s) listed in the proposal, the department chair also agrees to list the course(s) along with all other regular departmental offerings in the academic semester/session in which the Course Abroad program will occur.

Step 3

April 19, 2024:  If cross-listing with an International Studies (IS) course, the Department Chairs send proposal to the Director(s) of the International Studies (undergrad and/or graduate) for approval before forwarding the copy of approved proposals to their Academic Dean.  

Step 4

April 19-May 5, 2024: Academic Deans review proposals and request changes, as necessary. The Academic Dean’s approval is contingent upon the Department Chair’s prior approval.

Step 5

May 6, 2024: Academic Deans forward proposals with graduate-level courses to the Dean of Graduate Studies for his/her review and approval as appropriate. Proposals which offer 500-level coursework will be reviewed and approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies.  The Dean of Graduate Studies will also ascertain if the proposed courses should be listed together as one course or if each (e.g. graduate and undergraduate) will need to stand on its own.

Step 6

May 6, 2024: Academic Deans forward approved proposals (bearing signatures from the applying faculty member, department chair(s) and dean(s)) to CIE (attention: AVP John Tully at tullyj@ccsu.edu).

Step 7

May – August 2024:  CIE develops print and web-based material for all programs.

Step 8

July 2024 to January 2025: CIE develops program budgets, sets prices, and forecasts scholarships.
