Faculty and Staff Resources

Sac State faculty and staff play an important role in preparing our students to become socially aware and engaged global citizens. If you have questions, or would like to learn more about study abroad programs at Sac State, please don't hesitate to contact us!

Supporting Hornets Abroad



Each student needs the recommendation of a faculty member in order to study abroad. Both our office and CSU-IP rely heavily on these recommendations when evaluating potential candidates.

We would ask that faculty complete a recommendation detailing the applicant's suitability for a study abroad program. We want to ensure that our students are able to handle the academic and personal challenges that come from living abroad, and be good representatives of our university and our region while they are overseas.

Faculty recommendation forms are sent directly via e-mail through the application portal and can be submitted electronically.

Classroom Resources

In addition to supporting a student's study abroad application, faculty can also raise awareness of study abroad opportunities, and spark students' interests in the wider world in the following ways:

  • Sharing your own international experiences
  • Engaging in discussions of global issues that relate to your curriculum
  • Scheduling classroom presentations by IPGE staff members or study abroad returnees
  • Designing a Faculty-Led program in conjunction with the College of Continuing Education
  • Faculty members can also assist students in identifying potential classes that they can take abroad for corresponding Sac State credit. Students should use the following form when seeking course approvals:
