Program Proposal


Faculty members may gain access to the Short-Term Study Program Proposal application process by contacting the Office of Global and Experiential Education in the School of Business at sbintl@gwu.edu or (202) 994-1212. The proposal application requests detailed information about the course and requires the submission of a detailed syllabus, itinerary and budget.

As part of the process, professors must seek approval for their proposal from their department chair.

Proposals, once approved by the appropriate departmental chair, are evaluated by a review committee for their innovative approaches and curricular fit for the intended audience. After a proposal is approved, the Office of Global and Experiential Education works with the faculty to maintain a program budget, recruit students, collect student applications, create CRNs, secure classroom space on campus (if applicable), register students, provide insurance coverage, process financial payments, distribute health & safety information, and collect student evaluations. Faculty members focus on the academic content and development of the course, as well as all of the arrangements of the offsite component of the program.
