Program Description:

Propose a Catalog Course

 

CCSA provides education abroad opportunities in English-speaking regions of the world for students and faculty at our 27 member institutions. Students from non-member institutions may also apply for CCSA programs and earn credit through CCSA’s host institution, Western Kentucky University.

CCSA seeks innovative faculty to teach the most internationally and academically appropriate courses expected by students, their parents and our member institutions.



Catalog Program

CCSA accepts course proposals twice a year in which the learning goals integrate the location into the syllabus. Faculty infuse the learning goals with the culture, history, or significance of the location from the point of view of each particular discipline.

Check out the Clusters - CCSA accepts course proposals in which the learning goals integrate the location into the syllabus. Faculty should infuse the learning goals with the culture, history, or significance of the location from the point of view of each particular discipline. We offer a set clusters around a theme in which faculty may plug in a course. These groupings enable CCSA to promote a set of courses.  Of course, we don't limit the CCSA catalog to just these clusters, so you are not restricted in the type of course you wish to propose. 

The Summer catalog normally includes multiple courses taught on programs in these English-speaking locations:
  • Belize
  • Ireland (2-week) – early in Summer
  • Ireland (2-week) – later in summer
  • London (4-week)
  • London (2-week)
  • Scotland
Other locations where CCSA has offered Summer catalog programs:
  • Ghana
  • South Africa
The Winter catalog normally includes multiple courses taught on programs in these locations:
  • London
  • London & Dublin
  • New Zealand (even years)
  • Australia (odd years)
Past Itineraries and sample syllabi are available to give a picture of the program structure. For the catalog programs, course must fit into these standard model.

Eligibility


Any full-time, tenure track or tenured faculty member from a CCSA member institution.

Retired and emeritus faculty who continue to teach part-time, with the approval and support of the appropriate department at their institution

Full-time non-tenure track faculty with appropriate academic credentials are eligible to apply provided that their request is endorsed at the time by an appropriate dean, indicating that the faculty member has a reasonable expectation of being employed during the time the program is being offered and that should the course be approved the university will provide the required letter of support. As our proposals are due approximately 15 months in advance of the actual program dates, this endorsement is necessary to minimize student disappointment if the course must be cancelled because the faculty member is no longer teaching at a CCSA institution.

Part-Time and Adjunct Faculty - Faculty employed in less than a full-time capacity by a CCSA member school with appropriate academic credentials are eligible to propose a course provided that their request is endorsed at the time by the Campus Representative and by an appropriate dean (or designee), indicating that the faculty member has a reasonable expectation of being employed during the time the program is being offered. The endorsement includes both a Campus Approval form and the online approval of the Campus Representative as both are necessary to minimize student disappointment if the course must be cancelled because the faculty member is no longer teaching at a CCSA institution.

NOTE: Faculty who anticipate being on sabbatical or other type of leave for either semester prior to the date of the program should defer their application to a subsequent year, as presence on campus is necessary to engage in successful recruitment of students.
