Faculty Directed Programs

Lead the UW London Semester

The London Semester is open to faculty applicants across UW! The program offers faculty opportunities to teach and pursue research while our partners in London provide additional classes, student services, logistics, student housing, cultural activities, and classroom support. Located in Kensington, one of the best residential and most picturesque areas of central London, surrounded by places of enormous historical and cultural interest. The program offers access to museums, libraries, theaters, historic sites, and other resources of a major urban area. Courses in London are taught by faculty from a consortium of American universities, each of which sends faculty members and a group of students. Students choose from the courses taught by these instructors and other courses taught by resident British faculty. Faculty members selected to go to London will help publicize the program on campus and speak with prospective students While in London, the UW faculty member will serve as a link between London Semester students and UW.

Faculty members who are selected will work with the Education Abroad Office to recruit, interview, and select students for participation in the program. To learn more...

 

Call for Paper Proposals

Dear Colleagues: 

Stephanie Anderson from the School of Politics, Public Affairs, and I are pleased to share this call for paper proposals for a workshop on Global Leadership Crisis, Rising Inequalities, and Culture Wars that we are co-hosting with Tanja Boerzel and Thomas Risse from the Free University of Berlin from September 13-15 here in Laramie.  The conference will bring in 30 scholars from outside UW and we hope to have as many as 15 interdisciplinary scholars from UW involved in the conference.  We invite you to submit a proposal and ask you to send this out to those you think would be particularly interested.

Faculty Resources

International Site Visit Grant

The Global Engagement Office (GEO) maintains funding to encourage and support UW faculty and staff members who are already abroad to conduct short site visits to establish and/or maintain international partnerships and linkages on behalf of the University. Knowing that UW faculty and staff members often travel internationally for conferences, research, etc., the goal of this modest grant fund is to provide supplemental funding to cover additional expenses associated with conducting such visits as an add-on to the faculty or staff member’s pre-arranged travel (i.e. housing, meals, local transportation). 

What is an international site visit?  A typical site visit would be organized by GEO and the staff of the organization being visited, and is usually limited to a short office or campus visit. Site visits may include activities such as touring a university campus, meeting with local faculty and staff, visiting an agency related to international student recruitment, speaking with prospective international students, visiting national funding agencies concerned with international research and engagement, familiarization visits with established education abroad partners, etc. GEO will work closely with each traveling faculty or staff member to arrange an appropriate visit in alignment with time allowed and interest.

Who is eligible to apply, and how much is the grant?   Any UW faculty or staff member is welcome to conduct a site visit as part of previously arranged travel. Individuals may apply for multiple or successive site visit grants. UW faculty and staff members will be reimbursed up to $250 per approved site visit. Standard UW financial reimbursements policies and procedures apply.

What is required of grant recipients? Grant recipients are asked to provide feedback by completing a brief site visit report, the template for which will be provided prior to the site visit. GEO staff review these reports as part of our mission to continually assess and improve operations and further extend UW’s global engagement aspirations. Unless permitted, feedback will not be shared directly with host organizations.

Who can be contacted for more information?  UW faculty or staff are welcome to contact Kehli Hazlett, Assistant Director of Programing and Engagement for the Center for Global Studies (khazlet1@uwyo.edu, (307) 766-3677).
