Fall 2015 Study Abroad Faculty Leader Training October 15th and 16th

The Fall 2015 Study Abroad Faculty Leader Training will be offered on two days (October 15 and 16) at the OIRED Conference Room at 526 Prices Fork Road from 9:30 am to 1:45 pm. Faculty Leaders need only to attend one of the days (Oct 15 or 16). Lunch will be provided. These sessions are primarily for those leading trips in Wintermester and Spring 2016.

Currently, the policy for attending this training is once every 3 years. While the upcoming sessions are not required for all, there are new people to meet and new policies and procedures to learn about so it is highly recommended all faculty leaders attend one of the next four sessions offered.

We have capacity for ~30 faculty per session. Even though we’ve designated the Fall sessions for those with Wintermester and Spring programs and the Spring sessions for Summer and Fall programs, anyone can attend any session as long as there is room. Also, those who are involved in a administering our study abroad programs, i.e. support staff, College Liaisons to GEO, etc. are also welcome to attend.

Please contact Randy Penson ( and tell him which session you plan to attend. As we get closer to the sessions, he will inform the participants of who will be catering lunch and the meal choices.
