Santa Barbara, CA (December 2011) — The University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) recently announced the launch of new programs that will expand both the size and scope of UC’s portfolio in international education and attract new cohorts of students. Additional quarter, summer and year-long programming as well as new UC faculty-led multi-location programs have been created to enhance UCEAP’s comprehensive and diverse portfolio of study abroad opportunities.
“I am pleased to announce new programs that have been developed to meet the changing study abroad needs of UC students,” says Jean-Xavier Guinard, Associate Vice Provost and Executive Director of UCEAP. “Additionally, in celebration of UCEAP’s 50th anniversary we are offering five new faculty-led programs that combine lectures, excursions, and cultural activities in multi-destination program tracks throughout Europe or the Middle East. As a leader and innovator in study abroad for 50 years, UCEAP is committed to providing access to UC students through diverse programming options and exclusive study abroad scholarships, which total over $300,000 in 2011-12.”
The Academic Senate University Committee on International Education (UCIE), which reviews and oversees academic components of UCEAP, approved seven new UCEAP programs in various locations worldwide in addition to five 50th Anniversary Faculty-Led Summer programs. All programs are scheduled for the 2012-13 academic year and allow students to earn UC credit and UC grades.
