Faculty Application

Faculty members who wish to teach in the UL Study Abroad Program must submit the following application for consideration by the Study Abroad Committee. Faculty must hold a minimum of a master’s degree (and in some cases appropriate work experience) in the area(s) in which they propose to teach. Full-time and part-time (adjunct) instructors are invited to participate.

Each faculty member must propose two (2) courses (with the exception of those proposing to teach in Costa Rica) in order for an application to be considered by the UL Study Abroad Committee. Faculty members who propose to teach in Costa Rica must submit only one (1) course due to the short term of the program.

Faculty may submit cross-listings, but there is a limit of two (2) cross-listings per course. However, cross-listings are not required in order to be considered.

Faculty members are responsible for obtaining course approval from the Department Head under whom the proposed courses are offered as well as approval from each Department Head for each respective cross-listing being requested for the course. For example, if faculty propose to offer an ENGL course and cross-list it as THEA, HUMN or HONR, they will need to complete the cross-listing area(s) of the faculty application. They will also need to obtain Department Head approval from ALL Department Heads (one for the original/parent ENGL course and one for each requested cross-listed course).

Once an application has been submitted, the Study Abroad Office will forward the submission with a link to the approval form to the Department Head/Program Director. The faculty will receive weekly updates of courses that have been approved (original/parent course and each cross-listing). The Department Head must use the link to the online approval form located in the email they receive.

Faculty should submit their proposals as soon as possible in order to obtain Department Head approvals prior to the March 6, 2017, 4pm deadline.

Faculty members who wish to offer one or both of their courses as a cross-listed course in addition to the original/parent course must complete the following information for EVERY proposed cross-listing for this course. The respective Department Heads must be consulted with prior to submitting the request to cross-list a course.
