For Faculty

There are many opportunities for SJSU faculty to engage as a part of the Global Spartan community. As a faculty member there are many ways to engage with international programs and projects, you can: lead a Faculty-Led study abroad program (FLP), participate in international research and collaborations, serve as a CSU International Programs Resident Director, serve on the Faculty Led Advisory Committee (FLAC), or work with the Study Abroad and Away Office to champion existing and establish new exchange programs with international institutions.

The Study Abroad and Away Office provides expertise and assistance to faculty in developing short-term credit-bearing programming for our students that have a cross-cultural focus and provide an experientially based vehicle for teaching SJSU courses domestically and internationally.  If you are interested in developing a program that will offer courses for credit during the spring, winter and summer breaks – we can help!  Please contact the Director of Study Abroad to discuss your idea and to learn about how we can facilitate your program. 

Study Abroad and Away does offer co-curricular Alternative Spring Break programs domestically and abroad.  These programs focus on cultural immersion and community engagement, oftentimes including a service-learning project to engage with the local community.  The Alternative Spring Break programs offered through Study Abroad and Away focus on learning about local cultures. They are not discipline specific and do not offer academic credit. 

If you are interested in developing a co-curricular program to highlight or focus on an academic area in your discipline, one that does not include cultural immersion as a key element of the program, please work with the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education and your college Dean’s office to develop a field trip or alternative spring break through your college.
