Opportunities with CC Partners Abroad

CC maintains a carefully vetted list of programs around the world that we partner with for the education abroad of our students, and many opportunities exist every year for CC faculty to work more closely with our global partner programs--for site visits, conferences, and sabbatical teaching opportunities.

See below for a regularly-updated listing of upcoming opportunities for site visits, and application deadlines. Ongoing/sabbatical teaching opportunities are listed at the bottom of the page.

Limited funding may be available from the Christian Johnson Endeavor Fund (CJE) to support your participation; contact Dr. Allen Bertsche, Director of Global Education, for more information about these funds, or Heather Powell Browne, Assistant Director of Global Education, to learn more about our partner programs and these opportunities.

Site visits

All site visits and college travel are currently suspended due to COVID-19. This page will be updated as opportunities reopen and arise.
Thank you for your interest in and support of global education!
