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 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.
