INFORMATION FOR FACULTY
Faculty Guidelines for Program ProposalsEast Carolina University offers ECU-Led Study Abroad programs which are led by ECU faculty teaching ECU courses abroad. The programs generally run anywhere from two weeks to two months and may occur over the summer, spring break, or embedded within the fall or spring semesters.
The programs take quite a bit of preparation and require approval from your academic unit, college or school (for the academic portion), and the Office of Global Affairs (for financial, risk assessment, and feasibility). Faculty interested in developing an ECU-Led Study Abroad program should begin planning early.
