Promoting Your Faculty-led or Custom Program

Over the years, we've developed effective ways to spread the word and attract students to your faculty-led or custom program. We'll supply you with customized advertising materials to get you started in the recruitment process. Here are some additional tips for getting the word out on campus:

  • Ask your CIEE program manager for access to our free, easy-to-download Recruitment Guide.
  • Advertise on your institution’s study abroad website.
  • Create an information table at your institution’s study abroad fair.
  • Announce your program during classes.
  • If your program is a custom internship program, collaborate with your Career Services center and relevant discipline divisions to advertise the program
  • Network with faculty members that might have subject matter crossover.
  • Schedule information sessions – and include our resident staff members for Q & A via Skype.
  • Run an article in the campus paper and on school-affiliated social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
  • Post information on student organization listservs – especially those focused on international causes.
  • Enlist the help of a study abroad alumni to share their experience during informational sessions.
  • Make sure your promotional materials highlight financial resources available to help students studying or interning abroad, including scholarships and grants.
