Faculty Mobility Opportunities: Apply now for 2021 programs 

Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship

Applications for Spring/Summer 2021 fellowships are now open. The deadline for applications is Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020.

The Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship allows full-time and adjunct faculty the opportunity to teach for an eight-week term or semester at one of the following international Webster campuses:

  • Accra, Ghana
  • Athens, Greece
  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • Cha-am/Hua Hin, Thailand
  • Geneva, Switzerland
  • Leiden, the Netherlands
  • Tashkent, Uzbekistan
  • St. Louis, MO, USA
  • Vienna, Austria

Short-Term Faculty-Led Program

Global Program Development is now accepting proposals from faculty interested in leading a short-term study abroad program in Spring break or Summer of 2021. The deadline for proposal submission is Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020.

Faculty-led short-term study programs enrich Webster’s curriculum by taking learning to new dimensions outside the classroom. Faculty can propose to lead a group of students on an international immersion experience for academic credit. The learning experiences afforded by these programs helps support the University’s mission of transforming students for global citizenship and individual excellence.

Generally, these immersion experiences are a component of a longer term or semester course. Various program models exist for these hybrid courses, including teaching the course online, so that students from across the Webster University worldwide campus network can participate and meet on-the-ground for the immersion experience.
