Faculty Development Trips

Faculty have the option to use their Spring Break to to learn more about the business and economic environment of various regions on our international development trips. Through these trips, they bring back knowledge and cultural understanding to the classroom and are often able to incorporate these into their research. Past trips have included:

  • 2019 Madrid, Spain and Casablanca, Morocco

  • 2017 Athens, Greece and Milan, Italy
  • 2016 Dubai, UAE and Kuwait City, Kuwait

Faculty make a contribution toward the trip (from personal funds or TRT account) the remainder (airfare, hotel, tours, some meals) are funded by the Ahlers Center. Program includes visits to universities and companies to learn more about the business and economic environment of these countries and regions.
