Proposal Development

The following items must be completed and submitted as part of the proposal:
  • Faculty-led Proposal Form 2018-19
  • Faculty-led Site Evaluation Form (if proposing a new program)
  • Petition to Travel to a Warning Listed Country (if applicable)
  • Faculty Leader Agreement 2018-19
  • Attractive Program Overview - used for marketing your program and should be written to your prospective student audience (suggest 1-3 paragraphs).
  • Proposed Syllabus. Please note the following:
    • If this program is intended to count towards GLP credits, please review the information found on the RES/GLP website.  If the course is not already approved as a GLP course, please provide the GLP rationale and explicitly link the course modules/outline to the GLP categories and subsections, in your syllabus. This will be reviewed for approval by the Associate Vice Chancellor, as part of the faculty-led program proposal.
    • An Independent Study course is not the ideal use for a faculty-led program. If you intend to offer Independent Study credits, you will need to have this approved in advance through the Stout Online office.

This is required for our risk & safety plan and it will be submitted to Campus Police before your program departure and be used in case of an emergency. We would like to see a draft of your itinerary outlining the program by indicating the following items; daily location, mode of transportation when applicable, selected accommodation, likely cultural excursions, likely industry visits, etc. Please fill out as much information on the itinerary as you can. To be determined (TBD) can be used for details that are not yet finalized.
