Faculty Mobility

Webster University offers various opportunities for faculty to gain international experience and internationalize curriculum. Below is a list of current opportunities:

Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship

The Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship provides the opportunity for Webster University faculty members to travel to teach at one of the following Webster international campuses:  Athens, Geneva, Leiden, Vienna, Accra, Cha-am/Bangkok, St. Louis (main campus and Gateway Campus ). This program funds travel, housing and some incidental costs. The fellowship is open to full-time and adjunct faculty. Full-time faculty must have completed at least one academic year at Webster to be eligible. Adjunct faculty must have taught at least six courses at Webster to be eligible.

Please read the Leif J. Sverdrup Global Teaching Fellowship Policy and Procedure in full before applying.

The application for Spring and Summer 2019 are now closed. Fall 2019 applications will open in September, with a deadline of October 15. If you have a previous application, click here to access the application system.

Short-Term Faculty Led Programs

Short-term faculty led study programs enrich the curriculum by taking learning to new dimensions outside the classroom. These programs allow participants to understand the world around them by immersing them in other languages and cultures.  The learning experiences afforded by these programs help support the University’s mission of transforming students for global citizenship and individual excellence.  They are also a necessary alternative for students who cannot accommodate year-long or semester programs outside their home campus location.  Members of the Webster faculty are invited to plan and propose short-term study courses.

These programs are credit bearing and have an embedded travel component that highlights and supports the course learning objectives. All programs must be led by a Webster faculty. The format may include but is not limited to global hybrid format (an online course with travel component), condensed on-location courses, and other approved structures. The courses are typically less than 6 weeks of travel and may occur in any location around the world.

The proposals for Spring and Summer 2019 programs are now open with an extended deadline of May 4, 2018. Click here to access the proposal.
