Faculty Program Proposal

Syracuse Abroad accepts proposals from Syracuse faculty on an annual basis for summer courses taught the following year.

Proposal Review Timeline:

  • Complete online program proposal form by January 20 deadline

  • Faculty will be notified by June 1st with decisions

Faculty are required to submit a program proposal each year that a program will be considered, but returning programs submit an abbreviated version. There is no guarantee that a program will run every year.

The final proposals, new and returning, will be reviewed as a packet by your Dean and Syracuse Abroad, according to already established criteria. These include:
  • Priorities of the School or College
  • Compelling rationale and course content
  • Academic standards consistent with semester courses
  • Viable audience on the SU campus and potentially beyond SU
  • Program fit in context of other offerings abroad
  • Support of SU Center, if offered at a Center
  • Financial viability
  • Health & Safety Outlook
