Faculty and Staff
How We Work Together
The Office of Global Learning’s Education Abroad team is dedicated to supporting Cornell students as they explore international opportunities, apply for study abroad, and learn in locations around the world.
An important part of our work is partnering with faculty and staff across campus. We hope you'll engage with us to promote study abroad and Global Hubs and expand meaningful international experiences and access for all Cornell students.
Ways to Promote Study Abroad
The Faculty and Staff section of our website is a resource as you plan high-impact international opportunities for your student populations and support their learning experiences.
We want to work with you! Here are some ways we can work together to create life-changing study abroad experiences.
Build Effective Programs
Create curricular pathways.
Study abroad is enhanced when students have confidence about how their program courses return to their degree. Students start their planning by visiting our Academics webpage and exploring programs by subject on Experience. You can help your students make more informed decisions by working with us to develop curricular information for your college, school, or program.
A great starting point is developing a list of recommended and popular study abroad programs and courses for particular majors or minors. Or work with us on developing thematic pathways—or at a more in-depth level, mapping course equivalencies between partners' offerings and Cornell undergraduate fields of study.
Explore short-term international programs.
Host Tailored Info Sessions
Cosponsor a study abroad information session.
Our advisors are available to lead sessions on study abroad for your students—tailored to meet your goals. We can provide diverse undergraduate audiences with an overview of the study abroad process at Cornell and introduce resources they need to pursue international experiences that meet their academic goals. We can also fold our presentations into your existing outreach events. Please email us at least two weeks in advance to schedule a presentation.
Invite an Education Abroad advisor to present to your faculty or staff.
Foster Student Connections
Hold mixers and showcases for exchange students in your college or department.
Introduce your students to your colleagues around the world.
Your connections abroad make a world of difference to realizing study and research opportunities for your students, who are keen to find networks and dip into the world of working and researching abroad. Take the time to make formal and informal introductions and promote study and research with your international partners and colleagues in your discipline.
