Faculty and Staff: Committee on Off-Campus Study


The Committee on Off-Campus Study is a standing committee of the Faculty, and is co-chaired by the Director for Off-Campus Study and the Faculty Adviser for Off-Campus Study. The Assistant Director for Off-Campus Study serves as an ex-officio member. The committee is charged with advising the Off-Campus Study Office regarding changes in policy and practice; participating in regular reviews of Swarthmore College study abroad programs; reviewing approved and proposed study abroad programs; reviewing appeals of student petitions to attend non-approved programs; and in general overseeing the educational quality of all supported programs while contributing to the effort to remove unnecessary institutional barriers to participation.
