Recruitment

Getting started

Leading a study abroad program can seem overwhelming at times, particularly if you have never led one before. If you have taken over responsibility for an existing program, talk to the previous leaders to learn the various pitfalls and lessons learned in order to make your program as successful as possible. If you are new to leading either an existing or a new program, OSA will assist you throughout the process.

During the fall semester OSA sponsors a new study abroad program leader orientation. Dates and times are provided in the Study Abroad Program Leader Memo emails. These electronic memos provide leaders with study abroad information and suggested activities in an effort to facilitate communication between OSA and the study abroad leadership.

Be sure to meet with your OSA Study Abroad Coordinator to get aquanted with the areas that will need your attention. They include:

In particular, pay close attention on how to prepare and respond to emergencies abroad (see below).
