CCA has been offering unique, faculty designed and led summer study-abroad programs for the past 17 years. We are currently seeking proposals for summer 2017. Please visit cca.edu/abroad to see last summer’s programs as a point of reference in preparing your proposal.

Proposals for 2017 summer study abroad are due on or before Monday, October 10.

Please contact Nina Sadek, Dean of Special Programs, nsadek@cca.edu with any questions.

Eligible faculty must be adjunct level or above. Further to this criteria, please note that preference is given to faculty who have previously conducted a successful summer study-abroad program in terms of student experience, enrollment, and budgetary outcome, preferably at CCA. Priority is given to faculty who are fluent in the language spoken in the proposed country and have a pre-existing connection with the particular location. Additionally, faculty who reach a lot of students (teach multiple courses at CCA with large enrollments) and have exceptional student reviews are preferred as they are typically in the best position to attract students to enroll in a summer study-abroad offering.

Summer 2017
We are hoping to schedule one summer study-abroad program specifically for students in each of the following areas: Animation, Architecture, Graphic Design, Illustration, and Industrial Design. These programs have been identified because they have the largest student enrollments at the college. In addition, we plan to offer programs with a more fine arts emphasis that would be of interest to students from multiple majors.

For years, all CCA study-abroad programs have required students to have completed their sophomore or junior year. Starting in summer 2014, we began scheduling one program that is open to students between their freshman and sophomore year. This program should not include an exhibition of student work while abroad. Students from other levels are welcome to enroll.

The proposed program should be designed in such a way that it appeals to students from a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate disciplines at CCA. We are assuming that it would count as a studio elective (DIVST, DIVSM, and/or UDIST) would not be an option). Note: Fine Arts majors have the most electives within their curriculum; therefore, a fine arts-oriented offering would probably be preferable.    

If you think that your study-abroad course could satisfy a Diversity Studies Studio or Diversity Studies Seminar requirement, make sure that you carefully read the criteria and learning outcomes for the Diversity Studies requirement and check the appropriate application box.

If you think that your study-abroad course could satisfy an Upper Division Interdisciplinary Studio requirement, make sure that you carefully read the criteria and learning outcomes for the UDIST requirement and check the appropriate application box.

This application is for general exhibitions and gallery usage requests for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017. Exhibition requests can be placed for departmental exhibitions, faculty organized exhibitions related to coursework, scholarship or award exhibitions, review or accreditations, theme based or curated exhibitions organized by CCA student groups, and student group exhibitions. In 2016, we are expanding program support to include exhibitions featuring work by CCA graduate students. 

Before applying, please read through the General Exhibitions Request Guidelines

Please note, the original deadline to apply was Monday, March 21st at 11:59pm. We are still accepting exhibition requests but cannot guarantee it will be possible to fit them in. 

Contact exhibitions@cca.edu with any questions.

CCA Student Travel Grants are awarded to select student applicants to help fund
travel related to their coursework. Funding may go towards speaking at a
conference, conference attendance, or research-related travel, and a clear
correlation between the trip and the student applicant’s studies at CCA must be
made. This grant is not for travel expenses related to study abroad courses.

The maximum award for an individual travel grant is $500. The grants are
competitive; not all students applying for a grant will receive one.

Grants are for travel that has yet to occur at the time of submission. (Retroactive
grants will not be awarded.)

This application is for submission of proposal for UDIST course to be considered for the 2017/2018 academic year. Only CCA faculty who teach in the year of application or on College-approved sabbatical are eligible to apply (i.e., the academic year prior to the academic year the UDIST course will be taught).
For courses that are co-taught or team taught, at least one faculty instructor must be teaching or at CCA on College-approved sabbatical in the year of application.

Please ensure you have reviewed the UDIST proposal guidelines and learning outcomes prior to submitting your application.

The proposal must be interdisciplinary in order to be accepted. Interdisciplinary studios often fall into one of the three following structures:

1. A topic-based course that is relevant to students working in any discipline and engages students in cross-disciplinary discussions and dialogues and studio-based learning.

2. A multidisciplinary course that involves at least three disciplines across at least two divisions, often with an emphasis on collaborative work.

3. A course that approaches interdisciplinarity as a specific discipline in its own right in which interdisciplinary is understood as more than “a variety of disciplines.” Addresses practices that are interdisciplinary in nature.

Interdisciplinary Approach

Proposals should demonstrate an understanding of the different learning/working/processing styles within different disciplines and employ these to expand student understanding and learning.

Relevance & Innovation

The subject is relevant to CCA students and offers valuable experiences that are not available to them in their discipline-specific coursework. Proposals that explore contemporary subject matter, advanced materials, exploratory techniques and developing technologies are highly encouraged.
