Funding Available For Internationalizing Courses
DEADLINE: APRIL 16, 2012
As part of an on-going effort to internationalize the curriculum at KU, International Programs is offering an $850 stipend to tenured and tenure-track faculty who develop a new international course or significantly revise an existing course to make it more international. Proposals for courses that meet the academic requirements for the undergraduate Global Awareness Program (GAP) are especially welcomed. According to the GAP guidelines, these courses must have: (1) a significant, modern emphasis, with 50% or more of the content being from the 20th and 21st centuries; and, (2) an international focus, with 50% or more non-U.S. material. All proposals are welcome, but courses taught mainly to undergraduate students, and those which will impact a substantial amount of students, will receive preference. All proposed courses must be taught on the Lawrence or Edwards campus. Proposals for study abroad courses will not be considered.
All applicants who are selected for the program will be asked to participate in a two hour “Internationalization of the Curriculum” workshop on “stop day”, Friday, May 4, 2012, to present their ideas for the course and discuss ways of internationalizing the curriculum with other interested KU faculty. Faculty who participated in the 2010 and 2011 workshops are not eligible to apply for single grants.
Interested participants are invited to submit a short proposal (two to three pages, double-spaced) that includes: (1) a narrative description of the new course, or how a preexisting course will be substantially revised; (2) the course title and a (possible) course number; and, (3) a discussion of the potential impact you expect the course to have on KU’s international posture. The proposal should indicate whether or not the course is undergraduate or graduate, the expected enrollment, whether or not it is intended as a principal course, and the frequency with which it will be offered. It is expected that the course will be offered sometime during the next two academic years and that it will be offered at least three times within the next six-year period. Faculty from all academic disciplines are invited to submit proposals.
· The deadline for proposals is Monday, April 16. All proposals should be submitted to Brent Steele, International Programs, 300 Strong Hall, or by email: email@example.com, no later than 5:00 p.m. on that day.
· The department chair and/or dean, as appropriate, must endorse all proposals.
· Successful applicants will be notified on or before Monday, May 2.
· The workshop for program participants is scheduled for “stop day”, Friday, May 4, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon in the Parlor Room, Level 5 of the Kansas Union
· Attendance by participants in the full program of the workshop is required in order to receive the stipend.
· Participants will receive $850 to assist with the planning of the proposed course and for participation in the workshop.
· Participants will be asked to submit to International Programs a brief report on the new or revised course and a syllabus after it is offered.
· For more information, please contact Brent Steele, Director of Faculty Programs, 864-6161 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A Post-American World(?)
KU faculty are invited to submit proposals for the nineteenth annual International Seminar for Faculty, scheduled for the Spring Semester, 2012. The Faculty International Seminar was initiated in the early 1990s as part of the internationalization efforts of International Programs. The Seminar is intended to give KU faculty an opportunity to present and discuss works in progress on a key theme in global or international studies. It is also intended to foster cross-disciplinary and cross-regional interaction among the seminar participants. The theme for this seminar this year is: “A post-American World.” As in past seminars, this theme should be construed as broadly as possible. Proposals from all disciplines in the University are welcome, and we encourage you to think broadly from within your specific discipline as you consider a proposal that speaks to this theme.
The seminar will meet weekly or bi-weekly during the spring semester, depending on the number of participants. We will meet at a time to be mutually determined at a location to be announced. The format is simple. Papers will be circulated one week in advance. At each session, one participant will present a summary of his/her research, and a discussion will follow. Past seminar participants have found the experience valuable not only for the chance to interact with colleagues from across the University, but also for the opportunity to broaden their perspectives by considering those from other disciplines. A further intention of this seminar is that faculty who present papers or projects will have subsequent success publishing versions of them in scholarly or other professional venues.
Participants in the Seminar will receive a stipend of $850 from International Programs. Participants must be tenured or tenure-track faculty at KU. Participants will be expected to:
DEADLINE: October 28, 2011
The program will provide one semester free of departmental responsibilities in order to engage in
substantive exchange and interaction with faculty in another discipline, take courses, develop cross-
disciplinary projects, and/or to team-teach in one or, at most, two courses in another department or
school at the University of Kansas.
