Teach Abroad

Teaching at an institution located outside the United States can be an enriching and at times transformative experience for faculty members. 

Many of DePaul’s partner institutions around the world welcome DePaul faculty members for teaching experiences, whether through bilateral faculty exchanges or temporary arrangements. Some of the partners have structured visiting scholar programs, while some arrange teaching experiences ad-hoc based on individual faculty interests and scheduling needs.
