Proposing to Teach a BIST
Proposing a Berea International Summer Term (BIST) course
The timeline for proposing summer international courses for 2017 follows. The timeline should help facilitate such work as getting passports and visas, scheduling appropriate inoculations, and processing student loan and grant applications.
February 15, 2016: Faculty who want to propose an international summer course submit to the Academic Vice President’s Office:
- A completed Summer International Course Proposal Form (see attached)
- A tentative budget (airfare, food, lodging, fees, books, other), and
- A draft itinerary.
March 1, 2016: Academic Vice President’s Office, in consultation with the Center for International Education, reviews proposals. Faculty are notified of provisional approval.
March 15, 2016: Approved courses submit full budget to the Center for International Education, for review and final approval by the Academic Vice President’s Office.
September 2, 2016: Final budget confirmed by BIST instructors and approved by the CIE and the Academic Vice President’s Office. Please note that this is a tight schedule and so it will be difficult to consider late proposals.
