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 June preceding the CCE and Course offerings (e.g. June 2017 for offerings during the 2017-18 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 June of the previous year (e.g. June 2017 for course offerings for the 2018-19 academic year).
