 University Activity Abroad Approval Request Form


NOTE: In order to meet all export control compliance requirements for the University, Faculty-Leaders of planned activities abroad should process and submit their electronic TA BEFORE submitting the Approval Request Form.


Guidelines for “University Activity Abroad Approval Request Form”


The University Activity Abroad Approval Request Form should include a document that addresses the following:

  1. the purpose, objectives, and student learning outcomes of the activity abroad;
  2. a tentative itinerary that will indicate the schedule of activities and how these advance the objectives, purpose, and outcomes of the course (for those days and times that have not been scheduled, or arrangements confirmed, the faculty member should indicate what types of activities and visits are intended); and
  3. if a UNF course or courses are associated with the activity abroad, a complete syllabus should be attached to the request, including the formal course description, the relevant and appropriate required reading material for enhancing student learning about the course subject in the context of the nation/region (or what specific kinds of materials are being considered) that will advance the objectives, purpose, and outcomes of the course; how the student work that is graded (participation, journal, writing assignments, post-program paper/presentations, etc.) will be structured and organized in the context of this particular course and international trip, as well as in relation to the objectives, purpose, and outcomes of the course.
  4. If you choose to include ADA language in your syllabus or activity description for participants, please use the approved ADA language here.

 Faculty-Led Study Abroad Online Application Manual for Faculty and Staff



Beginning Fall 2015, faculty will have the ability to set up faculty-led study abroad programs and make them available for students to sign-up online. This opportunity will be available once a faculty-led study abroad program has completed the approval process and the faculty leaders have received the approval message from Dr. Tim Robinson (Director, International Affairs).


Study Abroad Clery Act & Incident Report Form  


NOTE: Please let the International Center know if/when an incident occurs on your study abroad trip as soon as it happens.


The International Center uses the information in each report for several purposes: to provide information on the University's Clery Act report each year, to help prepare future student orientations, and to include in our Annual Study Abroad Report of the incidents that occurred on our courses/activities.

The International Faculty Grants Program aims to support the development, by UNF faculty, of international transformational learning opportunities (TLOs) for UNF students. These grants are an integral component to fulfilling the University’s commitment to offering each student an individualized educational experience, including opportunities to participate in life-changing experiences such as study abroad. For the 2015-2016 academic year, approximately 8 grants will be awarded to fund proposals that seek to develop new opportunities for UNF students to have an international educational learning experience.
