said. These faculty may be in the dark about the services the international office can provide to prepare students and make the
arrangements to follow professors overseas. "We have a lot of faculty activity in Thailand and Southeast Asia," he added. If professors
bring students to assist in and learn from their research, "they'll
get kudos from their department for doing what they love to do
anyway. That's a win-win both for the faculty and the international
office." And when there's support from the top and a wider recognition among deans about how education abroad can contribute to
the drive for Tier One status, "then everybody feels compelled to
contribute," said Nader.
North Texas is using its 100,000 Strong in the Americas grant
to bolster a partnership with Universidad de Magallanes in Chile
and the Institute for Ecology and Biodiversity. It is tripling enrollment in an ambitious course called "Tracing Darwin's Path" that
sends students to do field studies, research, and internships at the
UNESCO Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve and elsewhere in Chile.

Weaving Study Abroad Goals into Strategic
Planning at UNC-Charlotte
The University of North Carolina-Charlotte has tapped internal
resources and engaged leaders from its seven colleges to encourage faculty to offer a spate of new summer study abroad courses.
"We've gone from zero to 15 in three years," said Assistant Provost

for International Programs Joël Gallegos. In some instances, faculty
got seed grants of $2,500 to $5,000 to get the courses started.
UNC-Charlotte is an urban university with 27,000 students.
Some 660 study abroad each year. "We are a research-intensive
institution. Our biggest colleges are Engineering, Computing and
Informatics, Education (and) Health and Human Services. It's a
challenge for many institutions to get those areas excited about
and engaged in study abroad."
But Gallegos believes that could change, in part because of the
cooperation and support he is getting from academic affairs and
from deans. "We very much have an 'it takes a village' (attitude) on
our campus," he said. "We patch limited funding together to make
interesting projects move forward."
UNC-Charlotte is about to enter a new strategic planning cycle,
and Gallegos is confident that the new blueprint will encourage the
colleges to approach education abroad "in a much more structured,
much more explicit way....We're currently working with academic
affairs on what those goals might look like." Funding study abroad
scholarships will also be a priority in an upcoming capital campaign.
In the meantime, he said, the international office "pinches pennies" to
keep the new, faculty-led courses as affordable as possible for students.
"We know that is one of the best ways we'll get our volume up." IE
