Providing opportunities for professional development is vital to the academic and overall success of IES Abroad.

We have developed a number of opportunities for staff members from study abroad offices at our consortium schools, as well as faculty from our partners that are designed to enhance the knowledge, experience, and insights of Consortium member faculty and staff.

We also offer opportunities to our own faculty who teach IES Abroad courses, as a means of giving them ongoing professional development.
