Call for Proposals for Study Abroad/Away and Experiential Learning Opportunities

The Global Learning Hub is pleased to issue the 2021-2022 call for new program proposals. This year’s call includes traditional faculty-led study abroad programs and proposals for new global experiential learning programs (e.g. programs that offer internships/externships/traineeships, research opportunities, and/or community-engaged learning opportunities with global dimensions).

The Global Learning Hub, a part of Global Affairs, supports the “Global Education for AllProvost’s Priority by providing a centralized location for students to learn about the breadth of global and intercultural learning opportunities available on and off campus. This includes traditional Study Abroad/Away as well as a growing portfolio of global experiential and co-/extra-curricular learning opportunities. Expanding and diversifying study abroad options is just one element of this effort.  The Global Learning Hub also encourages and supports faculty in developing other global learning opportunities for students.  

The proposal deadline is Monday, February 10, 2020 (5:00 p.m.). Decisions about programs will be announced in May 2020.

This year’s call focuses on the following areas:

Study Abroad

¹ Study Abroad has a firm cap on capacity; number of new programs accepted not to exceed five for Summer 2021.

² Number of new programs accepted not to exceed three for Academic Year 2021-22.

* Quarter Abroad program proposals are not being solicited this year and will not be considered.

Global Experiential Learning

  • Submit Online Proposal for Global Experiential Learning (Community/Industry/Government/NGO Global Learning Projects)

Other Opportunities

The Global Learning Hub also invites faculty to submit expressions of interest in developing new or deepening existing global learning opportunities not explicitly covered in this call, which can tap Global Affairs and the Global Learning Hub capacity to facilitate links with international partners, and/or support connections with on-campus international scholars, students, and faculty. Examples might include:

  • Workshops and seminars to prepare UC Davis students for community engaged global and intercultural learning in particular regions of the world;
  • Incorporating virtual international online collaboration into existing or new on-campus courses or co-curricular faculty, student, or staff-driven programs.

Information Sessions

Please also join us for one of two Faculty Information Sessions on the program proposal process, to be held in January, 2020:
