|Austin Peay State
|Faculty and Academic Staff Abroad
The university provides opportunities for faculty and academic staff to engage in activities abroad for professional development, teaching, research, and service with host countries.
The University recognizes the value of faculty and academic staff developing global competence and as such extend the Tennessee liability coverage to faculty and staff engaging in international education programs or courses to the extent that it is applicable in foreign jurisdictions. The University encourages and supports activities abroad for professional development, teaching, research, and service with the host countries. The University recognizes that these activities vary not only in purpose, but also in duration, type of arrangement with the host country, responsibilities to the home institution, and funding source. Despite these considerable variations, certain overall principles and policy apply.
