Opportunities, Logistical Support

Many times faculty have their own contacts in the host-country, which makes securing accommodations, classroom space, and local transportation very easy. For faculty who desire logistical support when developing their program, there are agencies that can help.  Below, please find information on affiliated study abroad program providers who offer customized program services for faculty, as well as recommended student travel agencies that work with study abroad programs.
