There are extensive International opportunities for faculty to teach/learn abroad. Investigate the possibilities! Faculty International Opportunities
Fulbright programs offer an opportunity to teach and/or do research abroad and to bring that experience back to students and colleagues at home. A Fulbright grant offers professional and personal opportunities to encounter different cultures, form lasting bonds with colleagues from other nations, and gain new perspectives on teaching and research. Fulbright encourages applications from community college faculty and administrators, and the Seattle Colleges also encourage applications by faculty and administrators. Fulbright offers several different kinds of grants.
Check out this year’s Global Impact program. Global Impact is the Seattle Colleges students, faculty and staff, partnering with healthcare professionals, educators and community members, to deliver healthcare and other volunteer service in developing countries.
Teach in China program through the Seattle Colleges
The Seattle College District (SCD) participates in the Washington Community College Consortium for Study Abroad (WCCCSA). Seattle Colleges students can join a quarter-long program in London, Florence, Costa Rica, South Africa and/or Spain through WCCCSA programs. Study Abroad program dates generally coincide with the start and end dates of the SCD academic calendar. Courses taken through this program will show up on the student’s Seattle Colleges transcript.
The Global District Council is comprised of faculty, students, staff and administrators from across the District. The GDC is charged with planning, reviewing and recommending future direction in the area of international education for the Seattle Colleges.
