Study Abroad contains a field of great scholarship and research in its own right and has developed rapidly over the last decade, creating extensive resources for universities and faculty leaders, and setting formal Standards recognized by the U.S. Department of State. The resources below will provide information and links to articles, tips, forms, and sourcebooks that help you envision, plan for, and execute your course responsibly and with academics and safety at the forefront of your planning. You'll discover that someone else has gone before you to help pave the way in planning and management.
