Global Development Opportunities for Faculty

The Center for Global Engagement is connected to affiliate programs throughout the world, and we’re able to offer them to our Hope College faculty for furthering professional development.

By exchanging ideas with other faculty around the globe, you’ll be able to enhance your teaching methods and create an international conversation in your classroom, benefitting your students.

Faculty Development

Our affiliate programs around the world are well-equipped for helping to enhance your professional development and provide a unique view into other methods. See the links below and contact our office for more information.

May/June Term Program Development

Are you interested in developing your own May/June Term off-campus study program? We offer a series of workshops that will guide you through how to best prepare, plan and execute a short-term program. Topics include logistical preparation, risk management, health and safety, recruiting, marketing and assessment. We recommend an 18-month planning and implementation phase. Please contact the Fried Center for Global Engagement to learn more about these workshops and to begin the process of developing your own program.

Risk Management

Are you leading a group of students off-campus?  If so, please be sure to complete the appropriate paperwork. For questions about these forms or other health and safety related questions, please contact the chair of the risk management team, Dr. Richard Frost.

Advising our Students

We offer guidance on advising your students before and after their off-campus programs or during their stay as international students.  Please contact us with any questions you might have and/or if you would like to receive the Faculty Advising Guide for Off-Campus Study.

Interested in learning more about how to best support an international student in and out of class? Find more with our Guide for Faculty and Instructors.
