Learning Abroad Course Proposal

A proposal must be submitted by each faculty member offering a course in conjunction with Rutgers-Camden Learning Abroad, including programs where students in distinct courses are traveling to the same destination (e.g. South Africa). A single proposal may be offered in the case of a team-taught course, including a course with cross-listings (when, for example, credit may be available in both Nursing and Anthropology for the same course).

The Learning Abroad Academic Advisory Committee does not oversee situations where staff and students travel together on non-academic programs. Even in these cases, however, to assure compliance with university regulations, staff members leading non-academic travel programs, and students who accompany them, must register at globaleducation.rutgers.eduFor information on registration and compliance contact the Rutgers-Camden Center for International Programs at learning.abroad@camden.rutgers.edu.

To facilitate record-keeping and compliance with the Academic and Administrative Framework, the program requires a new proposal even in the case of programs that have been offered in the past. The Framework may be found here.

Faculty members whose programs are approved by the LAAAC will be asked to submit a course syllabus, a detailed itinerary, and a detailed program description. These items will be posted and stored on the official program page at globaleducation.rutgers.edu, where all students will apply to participate in Rutgers-Camden Learning Abroad programs. Payment of course development grants (see Part II of the proposal form) will be authorized on submission of these items.

All program leaders must:

  • Make travel arrangements in collaboration with the Rutgers-Camden Center for International Programs
  • Submit their program description, itinerary, course syllabus, and any additional documents to the Center for International Programs for posting on the Learning Abroad website and the University's StudioAbroad website, globaleducation.rutgers.edu. (The University's Global Education website helps to insure that all participants have complied with health, safety, and other requirements and to facilitate recordkeeping and reporting.)
  • Complete faculty training programs organized by the director
  • Comply with all university policies and procedures, including those for risk management
