Study and Travel Programs Abroad: Guidelines for Two-Year College Students.
Schultz, Raymond E.
Students in 2-year colleges are often more provincial, and thus have a greater need for overseas study and travel experiences than other college students. Such programs in community colleges, however, are hampered by limited administrative experience and the special need for low costs and relatively short programs. The administration of these programs is discussed in terms of expected outcomes, credit, travel or residence study, staff, costs, housing, and how to contract for services. The document includes a list of guidelines for institutions conducting foreign study prepared by the Federation of Regional Accrediting Commissions of Higher Education, as well as the major part of an Office of Education pamphlet, "Study Abroad," which offers suggestions for selecting study-travel tours. Aspects the administrator should consider are the sponsor, sponsor's finances, contingency provisions, housing and study facilities, sponsor objectives, orientation, staffing, the program of study, and student selection procedure.
