Faculty-led Programs Abroad (FLPA)

For more than 20 years, Cleveland State faculty members have led short-term academic programs abroad. These shorter programs, typically 10 days to 4 weeks abroad, provide CSU students with international experience and residency credit hours in a short amount of time and at a low cost.

Programs led by CSU faculty members include courses taught by the faculty director, but may also include other instruction by faculty of a host institution. On-site, the faculty director serves as the professor of record for the class but also acts as a cultural guide, academic advisor, and resident director for the accompanying CSU students. The faculty member is also responsible for administering on-site program expenses and managing student and group emergencies as necessary.

Faculty members should develop and submit proposals for new or recurring short-term Education Abroad programs via the established program proposal process. All necessary proposal forms and deadlines can be found below or obtained from the staff at the Center for International Services and Programs (CISP).

Proposals for CSU Faculty-led Programs Abroad (FLPA) are due at the Center for International Services and Programs (CISP) on a date that is based on the planned delivery term/semester of the proposed program. Colleges are strongly encouraged to establish their own internal proposal deadlines to ensure appropriate review and approval at all required levels before the CISP deadline.  The Dean’s Office of the respective College or School is responsible for forwarding all approved faculty-led program proposals to the CISP by the deadline noted below.  Regretfully, late FLPA proposals cannot be accepted after the CISP deadline date noted below.
