Study Abroad

Program Director workshop schedule

Starting with the 2019-2020 academic year, UW Study Abroad is changing our program director workshop format.

All program directors are required to complete a mandatory Program Director Course accessible through your online proposal application (program dashboard) or co-leader registration application once your program has been approved. This course covers resources and support available at UW to assist you in managing all aspects of your study abroad program. Program directors and co-leaders must complete this course and earn a passing score before UW Study Abroad will be able to officially confirm the program and begin making payments.

Once you have completed the online course, you are expected to attend one 2 hour in person workshop in which we will review critical information and workshop case study scenarios. This in person session will give you the opportunity to test your knowledge, connect with other program directors and ask questions of UW Study Abroad staff and each other.

All workshops take place in Schmitz Hall, room 450. 

Upcoming dates

Due to campus closure, UW Study Abroad has cancelled our in person spring quarter program director workshops. We ask that you take the online course (located in your program proposal) and email your program manager if you have any questions.

Proposing a new program

If you are considering developing a new faculty-led study abroad program, we encourage you to read through the entire Proposing a Program section of our website. You can then come an information session on proposing a new program. We will cover important policies, financial considerations and timelines.

You can also contact us at studyabroad@uw.edu to set up a meeting with a member of our staff.
