Faculty and Staff

UTM Abroad offers opportunities for faculty to complement their teaching by embedding a unique travel opportunity relevant to the course theme and for staff to engage in a professional development opportunity abroad providing support to students.

UTM Abroad Co-Curricular Experiences and some UTM Abroad Courses require the participation of a staff member that travels with the group to provide safety support to students. Staff are selected based on their demonstrated crisis response and international travel experience as related to the selected opportunity. Applications for staff become available in April preceding the CCE and Course offerings (e.g. April 2018 for offerings during the 2018-19 academic year). 

UTM Abroad Courses are built around faculty needs associated with a specific course subject. Faculty led proposals are selected based on demonstrated fit of the international component with the course theme, potential student interest in the course and international location, addition to the range of course offerings, and alignment with the University's vision. Applications for course proposals become available in May of the previous year (e.g. May 2018 for course offerings for the 2019-20 academic year).
