This eleven-part procedures manual provides information on the operations of the International Studies Program (ISP) at St. Louis Community College. After introductory material on the program, which provides off-campus credit courses involving travel and field study of life and the cultures in foreign countries, Section I presents the philosophy of the program, which stresses the preparation of students for life in the world community. Section II explains that the ISP courses promote a total educational experience that develops academic and life skills. Sections III and IV outline the roles of the ISP Director, who is responsible for course approval, faculty selection, student registration, fee collection, publicity, and other administrative duties, and of the ISP Advisory Committee, which assists in determining program standards and course review. Next, Section V presents brief guidelines for program planning, and Section VI presents questions used to evaluate proposed ISP courses. After Section VII outlines criteria for the selection of faculty mentors (i.e., instructors who initiate and take responsibility for the courses), Section VIII enumerates the responsibilities of these faculty mentors in course planning and during the program of study. Sections IX and X consider methods of payment for ISP faculty and program fees. The final section outlines registration procedures. Appended are an ISP course proposal form, a budget planning guide, and an application for admission. (AYC)
