USAC Visiting Professor

Visiting Professors from Wright State University experience USAC firsthand and have the ability to expand their own repertoire by giving them the chance to teach abroad, to create new areas of  teaching and research with an international dimension, to strengthen links with international colleagues, and to expand their own knowledge of the world. Most returning visiting professors comment that teaching abroad was one of their most rewarding professional experiences, and many apply to teach abroad again.

Visiting professors do not need to worry about the overall logistics of the program as our on-site staff will handle details for both students and faculty, including arranging housing  accommodations, the on-site orientation, field trips, and handling any emergency situation that may arise.

VPs may bring their families with them, but they should plan well ahead to determine if it will be feasible for them to do so.

Requirements:

Candidates must be full-time faculty members in good standing at a USAC Affiliate University who will be returning to their home university following their term abroad.

The minimum credentials for faculty on our Specialty programs is a master’s degree and many faculty have a PhD.

Further details on other key qualifications can be found in the VP application.
