Visiting Scholars

Faculty should get approval from their department chair prior to agreeing to host visiting scholars. The chair must first ensure that we have space and resources available before approving a visiting scholar and that the visitor’s area of study will contribute to the mission of our faculty. Please provide exact dates of the visit, study collaboration plans, evidence of an interview to verify the visitor’s level of English, and the visitor’s CV. It can take several months for visas to process, so please submit visiting scholar proposals in the spring semester preceding the academic year of the visit.
