For Faculty and Staff

Supporting Study Abroad

At VMI, faculty and staff are encouraged to promote the idea of spending a semester or summer abroad.  Cultural awareness and appreciation are integral aspects of the VMI mission of producing young men and women who are global citizens.

Cadets are more likely to study abroad if they feel that their professors, academic advisers, and study abroad advisers are supportive.  We want to make it easy for you to guide your cadets academically through the process and support them through letters of recommendation.

Propose a Faculty Led Program

Help your cadets discover a world beyond the VMI classroom.  Make them the great global citizens they can be while enhancing their job opportunities.  General Order 73 outlines the process for taking cadets abroad.  The first step is to complete the proposal form by clicking here and then scheduling a meeting with the Office of International Programs.
