Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff play an integral role in internationalizing the undergraduate experience at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC).  To promote international scholarship, faculty and advisors help support student access to study abroad through advising, advocacy and support.  UCSC Study Abroad believes strongly in the development of global competency and citizenry by assisting students in identifying those international experiences that fit into their degree and career planning as well as support the internationalization efforts and community building at UCSC.

UCSC Study Abroad depends on faculty and staff to endorse and promote international experiences.  We welcome your ideas and look forward to working with you to further integrate and expand study abroad opportunities for our students.


UCSC Global Engagement invites faculty to submit proposals for study abroad programs. Global Engagement provides administrative and logistical support for UCSC faculty-led summer abroad programs. Contact us at global@ucsc.edu for more information


These resources are intended to help staff support students as they consider how an international experiences can meet their academic, personal and professional goals.  The UCSC Study Abroad team shares  the goal to help students seamlessly incorporate study abroad into their UCSC academic career.  We hope these resources will assist in advising.
