Short-term Faculty Exchange Program

The purpose of this program is to match faculty members from institutions in Mexico, Canada, and the United States who will collaborate in the partial design and teaching of a course. Each professor will be expected to travel to each of the other two institutions for a week at a time during the semester. In that week the professor will teach a class, meet with other faculty members in order to discuss future projects, give an open lecture to the community, etc. This semester seven pairs of academics will take part of this amazing program which will expose students to international faculty members, promote internationally aware curriculums, promote joint teaching programs, integrate activities with students from universities in different countries, and open doors to possibilities for future collaborations. Meet the first cohort of inspiring faculty who will participate in the program.

A second call for applications is now open! Participants will be selected during the spring of 2017 to take part of the fall 2017 short-term faculty mobility program. If you are interested, please submit your proposal here!
