New Program Development

Developing an Overseas Course

If you are an ONeill faculty member on the IU Bloomington or IUPUI campus, we are happy to talk with you about the possibility of creating an international, faculty-led program to call your own.

Our faculty-led programs give students the opportunity to study abroad with ONeill faculty, on ONeill courses, with students from across the IU campuses. We currently offer a wide range of program models, but we are also open to exploring new types of overseas experiences for students.

IU Education Abroad have created a training program to help guide new faculty leaders and program developers through the process of creating a faculty-led program. The training program is composed of short, stand-alone video modules that, in total, provide a complete overview of the process. 

The Education Abroad Program Development Training is a Canvas site that can be accessed here.
