UCR Study Abroad -- Faculty


Faculty Home


Welcome to UCR Education Abroad and thank you for your interest in supporting international education opportunities.  We encourage you to explore this website to find out how faculty can become involved and play a vital role in furthering international education opportunities.

Faculty play a central role in providing international experiences to impact students. This happens in many ways: serving as instructors in leading a program abroad, encouraging students to take advantage of education abroad opportunities, incorporating international learning into the curriculum, and taking an active role in internationalization efforts at UCR and through the UC system.

If you wish to get involved, there are many opportunities:

Teach Abroad

Are you interesting in designing and leading your own education abroad program during the summer?  Read this brief FAQ and Contact the Education Abroad office for information on how to propose a UCR Faculty-Led Education Abroad Program (FLEAP).

To propose a Faculty-Led Education Abroad Program for Summer 2020, submit a proposal and draft budget by Monday, 8 July 2019.

Conduct Research Abroad

Explore opportunities to conduct research in an international setting while serving as a country director through UCEAP. Check out the UCEAP faculty website for more information.

Class Visits

Contact the Education Abroad office to invite a student who recently returned from learning abroad to give a short 3-5 minute presentation in one of your classes.

Share Your Own Experiences

Sometimes the idea of leaving UCR for a summer, quarter or year seems intimidating to students—many of whom are away from a tight-knit family or community for the first time in their lives. Tell your own story, and make yourself accessible for students to ask questions.
