Council on Study Abroad

The Council on Study Abroad functions through a designee, the Director of the UHM Study Abroad Center. Its fundamental charges are to recommend policy and advise on proposed Study Abroad academic programs in terms of their feasibility and consistency within established guidelines. Council members collectively must employ a wide range of academic expertise outside of a specific discipline to be certain that high quality is maintained uniformly across all of the Study Abroad programs and to provide oversight, assessment of academic soundness, and evaluation of pedagogical achievements and ensure that the Mission of the (5/8/03) Study Abroad Center is achieved. Any UHM credit course that is offered abroad, except for those falling into the category of “Field Studies Programs” (5/8/03) must be reviewed and recommended for approval by the Council on Study Abroad as outlined in the Program Section of this document (4/10/03). In addition, the Council is the Curriculum Committee of the UHM Study Abroad Center that reviews and gives final approval to the academic content of the program (4/21/05).

Other charges include:

  1. Active promotion of Study Abroad by Council members within their units, providing support and advice to the Director;
  1. Reviewing and approving new Study Abroad programs to be offered under the aegis of the Study Abroad Center (9/95);
  1. Serving as the appointing (5/14/08) body for the Study Abroad Program Resident Directorship posts;
  1. Reviewing and approving existing Study Abroad programs if substantive changes to the courses and/or programs are proposed (9/95);
  1. Recommending and/or reviewing guidelines for Study Abroad programs and courses as and when needed;
  1. Collaborating with the Council on Program Reviews (COPR) to evaluate Study Abroad programs in conjunction with scheduled reviews;
  1. Recommending general policies as necessary.

The Faculty Senate Executive Committee shall be provided with names of the faculty members who wish to serve on the Council on Study Abroad. This includes names suggested by the Council, its Chair and the Director of the Center. The Mānoa Faculty Senate (through its Committee on Faculty Service) shall review this list. If the Senate disagrees with the suggestions they may consult with the Director of the Center or the Chair of the Council. Final appointments to the Council are made by the Faculty Senate Executive Committee (4/21/05). A prospective Council on Study Abroad appointee’s Study Abroad experience and or demonstrated interest in study abroad are to be taken into consideration when appointments are made (4/10/03).

Members serve three-year staggered terms with the appointment term normally commencing at the start of the fall semester.

The Council Chair is selected by the members of the Council (9/95).

The Director of the Honors Programs sits on the Council as a permanent member or for an unlimited term (4/10/03).
