Faculty Advisory Board / Study Abroad Council
The Faculty Advisory Board and Study Abroad Council work with department staff to ensure that Fordham’s study abroad office continues to meet the needs of our undergraduate students, faculty, and other departments by strengthening our established study abroad programs and policies, and by helping to identify university needs related to study abroad. Members are encouraged to promote international study to the university community as well as participate in an exchange of ideas to advance the goals of the department and to further global learning outcomes at the University.

Short Term Faculty-led Program Proposals
Short term faculty-led program proposals are due June 1 for the following academic year.
Courses can be offered in the summer, or you can add an international component to your fall or spring course with travel during the winter inter-session, spring break, or following commencement in May.
Ideally, courses will be interdisciplinary, engaged with the location, and consistent with Fordham’s mission as a research university in the Jesuit tradition. The faculty instructor will organize co-curricular excursions and group academic activities.
We will ask faculty with approved proposals to have their department chair and their dean approve the course and attend a faculty development seminar. Generally, transportation, accommodation, and a stipend will be provided.
You can propose a summer course in London, England supported by our colleagues at the Fordham London Centre or you can add a short travel component to a course you teach in NY by completing this proposal.
All faculty (and staff) participating in Fordham sponsored travel, must enroll in the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, and in Fordham's Travel Registry, found in the "Home" tab in the my.fordham.edu portal.
International Health Insurance
Fordham Faculty and Staff can purchase an affordable short-term international health insurance plan through INext.com. This is the same plan Fordham provides to our study abroad students.
