Procedures for Approval of New Programs


The establishment of a process for approving faculty-led study abroad courses enhances the communication between faculty interested in creating the courses, and the Office of International Affairs. This process helps faculty members to create international courses while ensuring the quality of their students' experience. Legal and safety issues are addressed, and a more accurate knowledge of Marywood University international and intercultural efforts is provided to the campus community.  This process must begin at least  eighteen months to one year prior to the planned program.
