RIT Global

Site visits are designed to give study abroad staff and faculty an in-depth look into study abroad programs available to RIT students. Participants will get to know on-site staff, experience components of the curriculum, and learn how programs could be customized to RIT’s needs. Space is limited and by application only.

Participants will

  • Experience study abroad programs first-hand
  • Meet with students and local staff
  • Learn what goes into a successful customized faculty-led program
  • Visit housing, internship sites and academic partners


  • Use this experience to build a future faculty-led program
  • Connect with potential research partners
  • Gain a greater understanding of your students’ study abroad experience


After your site visit, you will be expected to:

  • Meet with the RIT Education Abroad office to reflect on the program
  • If applicable, team up with the RIT Education Abroad office to promote and recruit students for the program
  • Discuss with your department chair and dean about potential collaborations

Participating in a Site Visit

Because site visits are discipline specific, the RIT Education Abroad office will let the appropriate faculty/dean know when these opportunities arise. Your department may have to pay a nominal cost for the site visit. Deadlines for site visits may be short, so getting back to us in a timely manner is essential.
