Current Faculty Activities
Welcome to the COE Faculty International webpage. The College of Education has an international faculty across departments from around the world including Argentina, China, Colombia, Egypt, England, Guatemala, India, Iran, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the UK. Some of the college international programs span entire departments; most of the international work, however, resides with the interests of individual faculty members. FAU has a robust Center for Global Engagement and an International Office of Study Abroad programs.
