Study Abroad Faculty Resources:

Click to launch photo gallery Dr Karen Koza’s marketing students participated in a virtual presentation for the business faculty at Loyola College in Spring 2009.

In Summer 2010, we will be rolling our first “official” faculty resource page. This will consist of a variety of tools including an online handbook and links to valuable faculty resources.  Meanwhile, should you have any questions about leading a course abroad or other opportunities abroad, please contact Elena Hart.
