For Faculty and Staff

Temple faculty and staff are crucial to the mission and efforts of the Education Abroad office. You play a significant role in Temple students’ decisions to study abroad, and it is only in partnership with Temple faculty and staff that we are able to create and promote international educational opportunities that enrich Temple students’ educational experiences.

Read below for ways to support international education at Temple.


Study abroad is a credit-bearing academic experience that requires coordination and collaboration between Education Abroad and Temple faculty and advisors. Academic and faculty advisors play an important role in helping students understand the benefits of study abroad, how and when a term abroad fits into their degree requirements, and what courses they should take while overseas. Temple students have opportunities to study at our campuses abroad in Rome or Tokyo, at our affiliated campus in Spain, with exchange partners, on faculty-led programs, and through our approved list of external programs. If you are a faculty or staff member who would like to learn more about education abroad, please contact .

    Faculty-led Programs

    Fulltime faculty members also develop and lead short-term study abroad programs, enriching the curricular offerings for Temple students. Contact Sara Sequin for more information.

    Temple Global Connect

    Take advantage of Temple's global reach, and enrich your students’ learning by hosting a virtual guest lecture or student discussion with a faculty member from abroad. Temple Global Connect was launched as part of International Education Week: Global Reach, Global Teach, and the first cohort collaborated in Spring 2021. The purpose of this program is to enrich Temple students' intercultural learning by collaborating with colleagues across Temple's campuses and partners worldwide. The program offers an extension of the overseas campuses' existing virtual guest lectures, broadening the participation of faculty university-wide and across disciplines. Learn more and submit your request (deadlines on the submission page).

    Visiting Faculty Opportunities 

    Temple Rome and Temple Japan offer limited opportunities for fulltime visiting faculty to teach abroad. Periodic calls for proposals are sent out by both campuses via email. 

     Additionally, Global Programs facilitiates short-term, semester-long and year-round visiting faculty opportunities at Temple’s partner universities in Asia, Europe and Latin America. For more information, contact .

    Request a Class Visit

    Global Engagement Office Resources

    Faculty and administrators play an important advisory role to the entire Global Engagement Office, including Education Abroad & Overseas Campuses, as we advocate for further internationalization of Temple University through our study abroad offerings. Visit the Global Engagement website for additional resources for faculty and staff.

    Education Abroad Advisory Committee

    Faculty and staff serve on the Education Abroad Advisory Committee. This committee is charged with supporting education abroad program development in line with the strategic priorities of Global Engagement and Education Abroad & Overseas Campuses (EAOC). A key goal of EAOC is to develop opportunities that fulfill a broad range of academic needs, represent geographic diversity, and advance access and inclusivity for under-represented students in education abroad, while maintaining academic and programmatic standards across the curriculum.
