Academic Integration (AI) is an initiative and priority of the University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP). It is broadly defined as the comprehensive integration of UCEAP programs and courses into the curricula of the University of California campuses.
The two primary goals of AI are to further engage and invest academic units in study abroad, and to demonstrate the feasibility of, and reduce academic barriers to, participation in UCEAP for students in all disciplines. AI makes international study a more prominent, accessible, and integral component of UC curricula, helping students fit study abroad appropriately and seamlessly into their academic programs; helping advisors harmonize advising messages from academic units and UCEAP; and helping faculty strengthen and promote relationships with international partners whose curricula complement those of UC. Current Academic Integration Initiatives include:
UCEAP Academic Integration Grants Program
UCEAP Registrars Database Project
Because receiving academic credit towards their major requirements is a primary concern of student who study abroad, UCEAP initiated an academic integration project in collaboration with the UC Registrars Council to create a searchable database of previously taken UCEAP courses and the types of credit awarded. One of our goals is that departments would use this historical information as a basis to consider course pre-approvals for particular courses taken abroad. At this time we have individual databases for six of the nine UC campuses. Contact AIntegration@eap.ucop.edu
