Submit Program Proposals
St. John's always welcomes proposals for short-term, faculty-directed programs. In order to facilitate a new program, please follow the steps outlined below.
1. Submit a Proposal Form to your chair and dean, for their approval. The form should be accompanied by a syllabus, academic calendar specifying contact hours, and a draft itinerary.
St. John's College faculty need to submit their material to Joyce Lawlor for her review. She will then submit the proposals to Dean Fagen for final approval.
College of Professional Studies faculty must submit their proposals to Dean O'Keefe for final approval.
2. Final approved proposal forms are due in the Office of Global Studies (OGS) on the following deadlines:
- Winter intersession: March 15
- Summer: August 15
Once the approved proposal form has been passed to the OGS, we will contact you to schedule a meeting to discuss your program at length. At that time, we ask that you be prepared to discuss the logistics, budgeting, recruitment strategies, compensation, and any other questions or concerns that you may have. After this meeting, your program budget will be finalized within 30 days of the original deadline.
