In support of learning, working, and volunteering abroad

The Education Abroad Committee (EAC) is responsible for approving and promoting quality learning abroad programs across the university through its review of group study abroad program proposals. Working collaboratively with the university’s academic colleges and departments, the EAC aims to support programmatic integrity and to ensure participant safety through the careful review of program proposals.

The EAC meets monthly throughout the year. Group study abroad program proposals (both credit-bearing and non-credit) should be routed through their respective colleges or administrative units before being submitted to the EAC:

EAC Deadlines for Group Study Abroad Proposal Review (credit-bearing programs only)

October 1 for summer programs
January 1 for fall and academic year programs
May 1 for spring, spring break, and winter break programs

NOTE: College and/or administrative unit review deadlines may be earlier.

Non-credit bearing group program proposals are reviewed as received.

Questions regarding EAC policies or deadlines may be directed to Sue Posch (scposch@iastate.edu) in the Study Abroad Center or to the appropriate college representative on the committee.
