Faculty-Led Programs

ISI Abroad’s University Relations staff is available to you from day one of the planning process. Contact us with your program dates, destination, budget and trips, or schedule a call with us so that we can chat about which ISI Abroad program locations and excursions best complement your desired learning objectives and budget.

Your Courses Taught at ISI

Need hard-to-find electives for programs in Italy? Does your faculty-led need another course? Perhaps faculty cannot attend the scheduled program? ISI Florence can help! We will be pleased to discuss your curricular needs and develop the courses together; we can even use your university's syllabi and assign a qualified instructor to teach them.

Facilities and Housing Rental

Just need classrooms or student and faculty housing? Need space for a conference or meeting? We can even embed your study abroad program at ISI Abroad including office space for faculty and staff. ISI Abroad has a number of spacious and well-equipped locations in the historic centers of Perugia and Florence available for rent for a day, a year or longer.

Getting Started

ISI Abroad’s University Relations staff will be available for you from day one of the planning process. You’re welcome to contact us with your program dates, budget, destination, and the trips and activities you would like to include. You can also send us a message (see chat icon in the lower right-hand corner) and request a call or zoom meeting to discuss your program ideas.
We have dozens of pre-made activities and excursions to choose from and can help suggest options that best complement your desired learning objectives. We can even teach courses based on syllabi provided.


Promoting Your Course

Once your program is planned and approved, you need to recruit students. Recruiting can be a daunting task, especially if there is a need to reach the group ‘minimum’ to ensure the successful launch of your program. ISI Abroad works to support your efforts by:

● providing creatively designed promotional flyers

● drafting a landing page on our website where students can access program-specific details;

● running social media ads targeting students on your campus;

● providing images, PowerPoint presentations, and/or press releases; and more!


Preparing to Go Abroad

So you have a group of students excited about attending your program; now it’s time to make sure they are well-informed and well-prepared for the experience. ISI Abroad’s University Relations team is ready to help with all aspects of the application and pre-departure process. We can offer virtual pre-departure webinars (in-person sessions available for some locations), provide visa guidance, answer questions from students and their families, advise on flights, arrival, what to pack, and more.

Travel in Italy

Faculty can focus on teaching; we will handle the rest

ISI Abroad not only assists in the promotion, recruitment and pre-departure processes, we also provide a full-range of services while abroad. Our on-location teams can arrange airport greeting, transportation, orientation, student help desk and support for student health and travel emergencies. We manage housing issues (including any encountered by faculty), and coordinate field trip logistics. This allows professors to focus exclusively on teaching. Past professors have reported that they feel free to travel, research, meet with students, or engage in other cultural activities outside of class time knowing ISI’s support staff is always available when needed.
