Short-Term Faculty Led Program - Call for Proposals

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.

Members of the Webster faculty are invited to plan and propose short-term study courses. The proposal form and other details can be found at here.

For faculty interested in this round of applications or applying in the future, information sessions on proposing and developing short-term programs will be held via WebEx on:

  • Thursday, September 5, 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. CST
  • Wednesday, September 11, 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. CST
  • Monday, September 23, 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. CST

To join in on the WebEx, RSVP here.
