KU Faculty Development Academies are day-long intensives, focused on a particular topic, giving faculty time to delve deep and develop a core capacity in a chosen area. Participants are welcome to register for as many dates as they’d like. Breakfast, lunch and snacks provided on each academies day.



Join us for Day 2 of KU Faculty Development Academies:
Global Engagement


The Global Engagement Academy will provide participating faculty with an introduction to the range of international activities that they might engage in at the University of Kansas. In addition to a peer panel of faculty who have been successfully engaged in the kinds of internationalization activities KU readily supports, we will have three sessions focusing on areas of faculty engagement:  


  • Internationalizing the student experience (through course internationalization, collaborative on-line international learning and the development of tailored study abroad programs);  
  • Internationalizing your experience as a faculty member through engagement with KU’s area studies centers and the development of international partnerships in support of your scholarly activity;  
  • A review of the resources available to faculty members as they build internationalization initiatives into their plans. 


The highly interactive day has been designed to connect you with faculty peers and administrative leadership who can support your international interests and ambitions. It will conclude with time to brainstorm on the initial development of personal action plans that are informed by the information shared over the course of the day. Feedback on those plans and a follow-up strategy will be discussed. 

Tuesday, May 14 from 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Location: Kansas Memorial Union, Jayhawk Room
