Domestic Field Study Program Planning

Existing Field Study planning
Each year, the Office of Global Engagement (OGE) works with Program Directors of existing programs to complete the Domestic Field Study Program Planning Process.

Similarly to study abroad programs, faculty and staff who run Domestic Field Study programs must engage in the annual program planning process. Each year, the Office of Global Engagement (OGE) works with Program Directors of existing programs to complete the Program Planning Process.

This process ensures that the necessary academic, curricular, and financial information for each program is communicated across campus. OGE will consult with Program Directors, unit heads, Curriculum Systems, the Office of Faculty Affairs, and other on-campus partners as necessary during this review. The final authority
for program planning will reside with the Associate Provost for Global Engagement.
