Visiting faculty at the European Study Centers

At the CEPA Foundation, helping people learn and grow is one of our many important goals. For this reason, we not only provide study abroad programs to students, but we also regularly welcome visiting faculty members from various cultural and professional backgrounds to teach at our centers.

If you are a faculty member of an accredited college or university in North America, then you are invited to teach 1 or 2 course(s) over a summer, spring, or fall semester at one of our beautiful European Study Centers in France or Germany.

In order to take part in this opportunity, it is necessary that you are also committed to recruiting 6 or more students from your own institution.


Apply to become a visiting faculty at either of the European Study Centers in France or Germany.
Applications should be submitted via email to the Director, Mrs. Ulrike Leibrecht
