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.

Timeline:

Fall Term 2015: Before creating a proposal, faculty interested in proposing an international summer course should discuss the possibility with his/her Program Chair and his/her Division Chair.

January 15, 2016: Faculty who want to propose an international summer course submit to the Academic Vice President’s Office:

  1. A completed Summer International Course Proposal Form (see attached)
  2. A tentative budget (airfare, food, lodging, fees, books, other), and
  3. A draft itinerary.

January 29, 2016:  Deadline for Division Chairs to submit their Division’s international summer course proposals to the Academic Vice President’s Office.

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 18, 2016: Approved courses submit full budget to the Center for International Education, for review and final approval by the Academic Vice President’s Office.
