Our faculty-led Study Abroad programs and international campus ethos are the qualities that most distinguish us from other colleges. Our unique faculty-led program structure means that over one-third of our faculty have taught abroad. Their long term interaction with an international curriculum has laid the basis for a campus culture that highly values intellectual preparation for the 'global century'.
Using our own faculty to lead study abroad programs permits a high level of control over the quality of teaching and learning. This practice has also improved the quality and expertise of our faculty which, in turn, benefits all students throughout their four years at CSB/SJU. Having more than 15 faculty leading semester-long programs and 10-20 leading short-term programs every year helps the colleges forge and maintain strategic relationships with international institutions, revitalize contact with strategic alum populations, recruit international students, and develop research and academic partnerships with international faculty to internationalize the campuses.
