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.

Faculty Site Visits & Familiarization Trips

Our Colorado College partner programs and universities around the world occasionally offer faculty opportunities to visit their programs and become familiar with the offerings, in order to enhance student advising and supports available back on the CC campus, and also to strengthen the curricular and departmental bonds and understanding between these partner programs and CC academics.


Generally, candidates for financial support for international site visits and partner program familiarization trips will be identified by Global Education, in accordance with departmental goals and potential impact to the College’s internationalization efforts. Factors that will be considered in fund disbursal include:

  • Willingness of faculty member to be an ongoing liaison for the study abroad opportunity within their department or program, and to offer feedback to the study abroad program on curricular connections or suggested alignments within the CC curriculum
  • Openness to serving as an ongoing campus resource / faculty advisor for future students who are interested in the program
  • The level of interest from CC students in the specific program or opportunity

As this fund is limited, it is appreciated when faculty participating in site visits can investigate other funding opportunities as well, from their department or division where appropriate. Program providers abroad may also have grants/funding support on an as-needed basis.


If you are specifically interested in any of these opportunities, please reach out to Heather Powell Browne in Global Education and we will be happy to discuss options with you.
