Interested in leading a Carleton Seminar in 2017-2018?
The Off-Campus Studies Committee would like to work with faculty who wish to propose off-campus seminars or winter break trips for the academic year 2017-2018. Proposals should come from full-time faculty members who have the support of their departments and continuing contracts with the College through the year when the programs are offered.
The OCS Committee is charged with approving a well-balanced calendar – one that offers a diverse portfolio of programs, is thoughtfully distributed among Carleton's three terms, and accommodates new programs alongside established off-campus seminars. Please read the questions on the attached proposal forms with care, giving us the most complete answers you can offer at this point in your planning. We encourage those proposing new programs to consider the student populations typically under-represented in Carleton off-campus study: athletes, male students, and science majors.
Please keep in mind that students who participate in summer seminars are required to take the winter or spring term off. For faculty directors, an OCS seminar term always counts as a two-course load. Depending on the program’s structure and pedagogy, the faculty director may choose to teach one, two, or all courses within the seminar. These options can be discussed with OCS staff during the seminar-planning process.
If you are interested in proposing an off-campus seminar for 2017-2018, please complete the attached forms, and return it to Off-Campus Studies, Leighton 119, no later than Friday, January 15, 2016.
Please discuss your plans with your department colleagues and chair. Provide your department chair with a copy of the completed proposal, and ask her/him to complete the Chair Endorsement Form. Upon receipt of these materials, the Committee will get back to you with questions and/or directions to complete the program proposal process.
Members of the Committee welcome questions on any part of this process.
