Narrative/Budget/College Approvals:

All proposals must include this program information; a narrative; course syllabus; a proposed budget; and letters of support from the dean or dean's designee of the college. Please send Narrative, Syllabus, Budget, and Letter of Support as email attachments to Nancy Dietrich.

Narrative Instructions: The narrative portion should include the following information:

  1. Program description (including outline of classroom activities, field experiences, and guest speakers)
  2. Leader biography, qualifications, and curriculum vitae.
  3. Foreign language requirements
  4. Cross-cultural learning opportunities
  5. Health, safety, and legal requirements
  6. Student qualifications and prerequisites
  7. Student enrollment and program marketing plan
  8. Student pre-departure and post-experience requirements
  9. Program evaluation plan

Syllabus Instructions: Each proposal should include a course syllabus that outlines the academic course credits proposed, program dates, and tentative daily schedule that includes at least 15 contact hours for each academic credit.

Budget Instructions: Each course proposal should include an attached proposed budget for the program. Serious attention must be given to the issue of program costs. A number of factors can affect program cost, such as length and location of excursions, type of accommodation (faculty and student) used, and number of faculty and/or assistants included in the program. For example, including more than one faculty member for each 12-15 participants can add significantly to the cost of the program and therefore needs to be justified by issues of student health and safety, program logistics, and/or faculty availability. Budget should reflect all program costs and proposed student program fees to ensure that fees cover anticipated costs.

Review Procedures: Review of formal program proposals will take place in November and December 2012, and accepted course proposals will be announced in January 2013. They will be reviewed by LCC faculty and staff, including those familiar with the geographic area and/or subject matter of the proposal program. New programs cannot be advertised or marketed to students until final approval is received.
