For Faculty/Advisers

Support a student's study abroad experience

Your support is an essential part of each student’s study abroad experience. The information below can help inform your discussions with students before, during, and after they study abroad. We also outline opportunities to connect with GLO!

Advising Resources

University Study Abroad Committee (USAC)

The University Study Abroad Committee (USAC) is a faculty committee that reviews, approves, and evaluates all undergraduate study abroad programs to ensure that they are consistent with Northwestern's educational goals, values, and academic standards. Learn more about USAC, faculty membership, and the new program proposal process.

GLObal Guides

Northwestern faculty and staff have extensive international experience and offer invaluable insights to students considering or preparing for a study abroad experience. The GLObal Guides program recognizes faculty and staff as advocates for study abroad and highlights them as resources to prospective study abroad students. We hope you will consider becoming a GLObal Guide!

The Global Learning Office staff are always available to discuss the benefits of learning abroad, opportunities available to Northwestern students, the application process, and other opportunities for collaboration. GLO has assigned staff liaisons to Northwestern offices and departments, so that you have a central point of contact. Find and contact your GLO liaison anytime!
