Welcome, WSU Faculty! This page is full of resources to help you make a fantastic Study Abroad Program for our students. If at any time you have questions, feel free to contact us.
As a WSU faculty member leading a travel study program, you should familiarize yourself with the Study Abroad Program Director Handbook. This document will help you better understand your role, responsibilities, and rights as a Study Abroad Program Director. Please read it thoroughly before submitting a proposal for your Study Abroad Program.
Your program proposal must:
- Contain all required information and documentation
- Be signed by your academic department head and dean before submission
- Be accompanied by a signed Conflict of Interest Disclaimer.
Traveling abroad is a great experience that may come with some risk. Please consider the following while planning and leading a Study Abroad Program:
- Consider purchasing travel insurance for yourself and encourage your students to do the same.
- Always travel with a cell phone that works in the destination country or countries, and please give the number to Study Abroad and the WSU Travel Manager.
- Seriously consider booking your air travel as a group through the WSU Travel Manager. Traveling as a group is always a good idea – remember that some students may not have traveled before, especially internationally. If you decide to book airfare individually, please do so through the WSU Travel Manager so we have all participants’ itinerary in case of an emergency.
- Provide students with emergency information, including local emergency phone numbers.
