Why faculty-led programs?
Faculty-led programs are a cost-effective way for university students to study abroad. It provides especially those students the opportunity to experience learning and living in an international setting who may not be able to commit for a semester long program.

And most of all... integrating a faculty-led program into your course maximizes your students' learning outcomes and broadens their global understanding and tolerance.

Why faculty-led programs with CEPA?
For 20 years, we have been creating innovative ways for universities and colleges to internationalize their curriculum and provide as many opportunities as possible for cultural immersion.

Our mission is to develop and deliver education abroad programs with strong academic and cultural components in close partnership with faculty leaders and administrators at colleges and universities
