Faculty Resources

Faculty are an integral component to the success of study abroad/away programming at Viterbo University. The Study Abroad/Away Office at Viterbo provides administrative and logistical support for faculty-led study abroad programs, which have sent hundreds of Viterbo students abroad. Viterbo's short-term, faculty-led programs are designed to offer diverse opportunities to all students and to a wide variety of international and domestic destinations. These types of opportunities would not be possible without our faculty partners and the efforts and dedication they pour into these programs.

This page is intended for faculty to use as a resource for engaging with study abroad at Viterbo. Please be sure to email the Study Abroad/Away Office as we look forward to helping you in your quest to venture abroad.
