Cal Poly Global Programs

for New and Renewing Programs 


Cal Poly faculty have the opportunity to propose a new or renewing Custom Cal Poly Global Program.  Twice per year, the International Center accepts proposals for new and renewing Cal Poly Global Programs.  The review process is competitive, and proposals are reviewed by the International Programs Committee and key members of IGEE.  Decisions are made and announced by the Director of the International Center.  View the most recent Call for Proposals. 
Priority is given to faculty who:
  • Propose programs that fulfill major, minor, or GE requirements
  • Have the potential to garner sufficient interest for 20+ participants in the program
  • Have experience and expertise in the program location
  • Offer a minimum of 4 units on the program and adhere to the two unit per week maximum
  • Address curricular areas not supported by existing faculty-led programs
  • Offer opportunities in countries or regions where Cal Poly has few or no current programs
  • Emphasize increasing the accessibility of study abroad, focusing on students in underrepresented populations (e.g., students of color, students with disabilities, students from low-income households, etc.)
