Resources for Staff

Welcome to campus staff resources and thank you for your interest, support and promotion of study abroad to our University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) students.  These resources are intended to help you support students as they consider how an international experiences can meet their academic, personal and professional goals as well as prepare for a successful study abroad experience.  The UCSC Study Abroad team shares with you the goal to see students seamlessly incorporate study abroad into their UCSC academic career.  We hope these resources will assist your advising.  


Academics

The Academic Planning for UCEAP handout provides critical academic information to students.  As an advisor, it will answer many of frequently asked questions regarding academic policies that impact UCEAP participation. If you have any questions about academic policies related to UCEAP or other study abroad options, please contact us at global@ucsc.edu.  
UCEAP Academic Integration Grants of up to $5000 are offered every year by UCEAP to promote and integrate UCEAP programs into department curriculum.  Successful grant proposals have included the creation of pre-approved course lists, sample four year academic plans that include study abroad participation, workshops, and other projects that identify and improve pathways for students to study abroad.   The call for grant proposals is forwarded to campus departments in the fall and deadlines are generally end of November.  To discuss grant proposals, please contact Study Abroad Director Alice Michel: acmichel@ucsc.edu.
