Program Review & Development
Education Abroad, a unit within The University Office of Global Programs, welcomes faculty involvement with study abroad as an important hallmark of the University's goal to internationalize student learning and teaching. Education Abroad has been charged by the provost with the responsibility for coordinating, reviewing, administering, evaluating, and providing oversight of all University agreements with an international dimension. Therefore, all programs offered for Penn State academic credit outside the United States must be submitted to Education Abroad for review. Programs under the purview of Education Abroad are defined as any credit-bearing course or body of courses for which all or part of the content is offered abroad. Any contract and/or other agreements associated with an overseas program must also be reviewed and approved by the University Office of Global Programs, the Risk Management Office, and the Assistant Treasurer.
