Faculty are an integral part of our programs.

The OSA greatly values our partnership with Trinity faculty and staff.  Our office works very closely with faculty to ensure that students have a strong academic experience studying away, and we work with staff across the campus to make it possible for Trinity students to go and return smoothly.

Each of the OSA-administered programs were developed with the help of Trinity faculty and all of these programs have one or more faculty who oversee the academics. In addition, there are many Trinity faculty who are knowledgeable about the approved and affilliate programs who regularly serve as a resource to students with questions.

In order to help the OSA staff better serve students and faculty, the OSA staff hope to visit each academic department/program to discuss departmental/student needs and faculty recommendations.

We also maintain regular contact with administrative offices and staff and welcome opportunities to meet with staff in any offices who are interested in further collaborating with us.

Please contact the OSA for further information or if you would like to request hard copies of the Guidelines for Study Away, Request for Approval to Study Away, or any of the Trinity program brochures.

Thank you, OSA Staff
