The Missouri S&T Study Abroad Advisory Committee awarded $25,000 in grant funds to assist in developing faculty-led short-term study abroad programs. The committee considered seven proposals and six faculty members were selected to receive funding. This funding will be used for travel or other costs associated with developing a faculty-led study abroad program. Below are the selected faculty members, along with their proposed courses and program locations.
Grants of $5,000 were awarded for the following programs:
The committee thanks leaders at the colleges and international affairs for funding the grants: Dr. Stephen Roberts, vice provost and dean of the College of Arts, Sciences, and Business and a professor of biological sciences; Dr. Richard Brow, Curators’ Distinguished Professor of ceramic engineering and interim vice provost and dean for the College of Engineering and Computing; and Dr. Warren K. Wray, vice chancellor for Global and Strategic Partnerships. The committee appreciates the faculty members who submitted proposals. These strategic investments will extend the global opportunities for Missouri S&T students and provide a more competitive advantage to students interested in global career opportunities and global experiences.
In May 2015, Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader signed a commitment to join Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad initiative to double the number of students who study abroad by the year 2020. The development of faculty-led short-term programs is one way Missouri S&T is expanding study abroad opportunities for students. Faculty-led short-term study abroad programs are usually two or three weeks long and offer students the opportunity to earn Missouri S&T credit while experiencing new cultures.
