Program Development Grant Proposal
UK EA maintains a fund to support faculty international travel for the purposes of establishing a new UK faculty-directed education abroad program. Grants may be awarded for either a course that embeds an international travel into a fall or spring semester course at UK or for a program to be offered during the summer or winter term.
Health & Safety Review Part 1
Faculty members directing an education abroad program without the aid of one of UK EA’s affiliated partners will need to complete the Health and Safety Review hyperlinked above. Part 1 of this form should be completed in tandem with the program’s budget, and is required in order to open the program’s application page.
Health & Safety Review Part 2
Faculty members directing an education abroad program without the aid of one of UK EA’s affiliated partners will need to complete the Health and Safety Review hyperlinked above. Part 2 of this form should be completed in tandem with the program director health & safety orientation, and is required prior to the program start date.
Program Director Responsibilities
This document outlines the major job responsibilities of any UK faculty or staff member serving in the capacity of a Program Director or Assistant Program Director on a ‘customized’ UK Faculty-Directed Program. The Appendix lists additional or alternative responsibilities that impact ‘non-customized’ program directors.
Program Director Handbook 2019-2020
This document outlines the process of developing a faculty-directed program from start to finish, and is intended to give faculty members the tools needed to successfully run their program at every stage of the journey.
Curriculum Committee Approval
The University Senate requires that all UK courses taught as part of a credit-bearing, faculty-directed education abroad program obtain college-level Curriculum Committee approval each time the course is taught abroad. This requirement applies to all courses, even those that have already been approved by the University Senate to be taught domestically.
