Faculty & Advisors
If you would be willing to have an International Center staff member speak briefly in your class about how to study abroad through Norwich, we would be happy to visit at your convenience. Presentations can be short so as to preserve valuable instructional time or can take a whole class period if you would like to offer a session while you have to be away from Norwich.
We are also happy to speak at departmental meetings or at club meetings if you advise an organization that you think might benefit from hearing about international programs. To request a presentation from the International Center for your class, department meeting, or organization meeting, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Short-Term Faculty-Led Study Abroad: The Maymester Global Classroom Series
The Maymester Global Classroom Series is a cluster of academic course offerings that are facilitated through the International Center, in coordination with academic units, and designed as short-term, education abroad programs. These courses are taught outside of the United States and take place during the first few weeks of Summer Session. Each course will feature Norwich faculty teaching Norwich students for Norwich credit, meaning that students pay Norwich tuition and earn grades that will be included in their grade point average. The courses offered during Maymester will initially be “Special Topics” courses that intentionally incorporate and take full advantage of the location abroad (e.g., “The Chemistry of Foods in Spain”). The courses can meet General Education or major-specific requirements, with the series ideally including a mix.
Faculty teaching courses as part of the Maymester Global Classroom Series will be paid in a manner consistent with the scale and process for a normal Summer Session course, and will also have all of their travel, accommodation, and other program-related expenses covered. The International Center begins accepting proposal roughly 3 semesters (14-18 months) before proposed travel to build classes, build a cost-sheet, plan travel, and develop recruitment material. For more information about Proposal Workshops or Proposal Deadlines, please visit our International Events page. If you are interested in learning more about faculty-led opportunities, please contact the International Center.
