SHU International Partner Universities and Programs Mini-Grants

The international Partner Universities and Programs (iPUP) mini-grant program was created in an effort to further support Sacred Heart University’s academic partnerships abroad. Available to SHU faculty and staff interested in visiting one of our partner international universities or programs, the iPUP mini grant is designed to complement existing faculty and staff travel plans.

Selected awardees will visit a partner university or program during their existing international travels on behalf of the university. These visits allow faculty and staff to represent the university and strengthen existing partnerships, deepen relationships, and/or expand opportunities to generate additional research collaboration.

A limited number of iPUPs are available each fiscal year. Coordinating the visit will be in collaboration with the Office of Global Affairs and the host institution.

CIEE International Faculty Development Seminars

Twice a year, the Office of Global Affairs will place a call for faculty interested in attending a CIEE International Faculty Development Seminars.

The IFDS program provide faculty and administrators with access to cutting-edge academic paradigms, diverse world views, and innovative approaches to learning and problem-solving needed to enhance syllabi, internationalize curriculum, and enrich research activities on campus.

You’ll attend lectures by faculty and experts and visit fascinating locations linked to academic content. You’ll share ideas and shape conclusions with colleagues on a subject that is uniquely relevant to the world today. And you’ll collaborate with local organizations and top institutions to see theoretical concepts and solutions to current challenges in action. At the end of the seminar, you’ll take part in a specially designed workshop on how to apply your experience on your home campus.  Please note, funding is not available through the Office of Global Affairs.

Seminars are offered in the following disciplines:

  • Architecture
  • Arts + Humanities
  • Business
  • Environment
  • Health
