Program Description:
PLU Gateway Programs are semester-long study away experiences that offer students coursework, study tours, and (for some programs) an internship/service opportunity in regions of the world where PLU has significant commitments. The Gateway Programs’ foci and coursework vary. Programs that currently require Site Directors are located in China (Fall), England (Fall or Spring), Mexico (Fall), Trinidad and Tobago (J-Term only) and Namibia (Spring). A summary of Site Director eligibility requirements, responsibilities, first available semester and benefits may be obtained from the Executive Director of the Wang Center. Her contact information is listed below.

Should you be interested, and in order to assist all affected units in planning for the next several years, the Wang Center Executive Director requests your application materials (all listed in the application). Before beginning the application process, please discuss this with your Chair and Dean to be sure your participation can be supported in light of departmental staffing needs and sabbatical scheduling.

Gateway Site Director Applications are reviewed by the relevant Gateway Program Director and the Executive Director of the Wang Center. Recommendations for appointment are carried forth to the Provost for final approval. Once the Provost's approval is granted an appointment letter is issued by the Wang Center.

Additional information about PLU’s semester programs is available in the Wang Center’s Study Away website.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE AUGUST 1 FOR THE FOLLOWING ACADEMIC YEAR. (i.e. August 1, 2020 for 2021-2022 Academic Year)
