Teach with a Consortium

UK faculty members can also opt to teach abroad through one of UK EA’s consortia partners, such as the Kentucky Institute for International Studies (KIIS) and the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad (CCSA). Faculty members can apply to teach through an already-established program or they may propose their own, new program.

For more information about how to teach through KIIS or CCSA, please email UK EA.
