Creating a New Program

How to get started

The University is undergoing a review of our existing programs and is not accepting proposals for new learning abroad programs at this time.  Please contact Beth Laux at b.laux@utah.edu for more information.

There are two types of faculty-generated programs at the U: Faculty Led and Exchanges.

  1. Faculty led programs require faculty to travel abroad with a group of students to provide an innovative, intercultural experience that is not available on campus. Students earn U of U credit on faculty led programs.
  2. Exchange programs are legal agreements between the University of Utah and a host institution in another country. Each exchange program also has a director, but exchange directors do not travel abroad with students. Exchange directors promote exchange experiences to interested students and provide cultural and academic support to students who participate.
