FACULTY-LED STUDY ABROAD
To Prospective Study Abroad Office and interested faculty:
HISA is a strong supporter of faculty led study abroad programs. We know that professors find these abroad courses to be both rewarding and challenging. But exciting and experiential as they are, developing and implementing the study abroad journey is no easy task. With a decade of study abroad experience in Greece, HISA staff and faculty are highly organized and adept at arranging all the necessary facilities, classroom and studio space, accommodation and excursion opportunities, as well as informative orientations to make for a smooth and top quality course abroad. If the university does not include health insurance, HISA’s Safety and Health Director will arrange for each student to be covered.
Dealing with a group of students 24/7, many of whom have never been abroad before, requires not only a unique set of skills, but often an enhanced level of patience and tolerance. Instead of doing everything on your own, let HISA customize a program to assist you in developing your overseas course. Let HISA’s staff know what you require and they will do the leg work, give you a price per student, and help, if need be, with program marketing and other forms of support. HISA can integrate your course syllabus with one of ours, to assure credit for students, or suggest additional courses that tie in well with your particular offering. HISA is flexible and can work with limited numbers if need be.
