For Faculty



Faculty and staff play a crucial role in Kean’s international programs. Here are a few ways you can contribute to the internationalization of Kean University:

Participate in a Faculty-led Travelearn program                                                                                                   

We are here to assist you in developing short-term educational travel to destinations around the world. Visit our Travelearn page for information on forms and procedures.

Host a Visiting Professor or Scholar

Kean University has authorization to extend visa sponsorship to foreign professors, researchers, and short-term scholars to promote "mutual understanding between Americans and the citizens of other countries". In order to participate in this program, candidates must be professionals in their fields, e.g., foreign faculty or business professionals, whose careers will benefit from the proposed program at Kean and whose experience will enhance the faculty of the host department. Positions must be temporary in nature, not exceeding a period of three years. If you are interested in learning more about hosting a colleague through the Exchange Visitor Program, please give us a call or download our Visiting Professor/Researcher form for more information.

Encourage a student to Study Abroad

The Center for International Studies values the partnerships with academic departments in promoting study abroad opportunities. Students often cite faculty, friends, and family as their primary resources during the study abroad planning process. Each person – faculty advisor, teaching professor, and study abroad coordinator- plays an important role in ensuring that Kean students get abroad and have a successful experience.
