Global Program Development

Global Program Development (GPD) provides strategic leadership and direction for the development and launch of global academic programs that support international mobility for faculty and students.

In collaboration with academic units and international campuses and partners, GPD assists in developing thematically focused and high impact study abroad programs which take advantage of Webster's academic expertise and our campuses' and partner institutions' unique locations. These programs include short-term faculty led and full-term programming.

To do this, GPD, supports establishing and maintaining relationships with global partner institutions and organizations.

As a strong part of its goals, GPD facilitates faculty mobility through its internal mobility programs and with external partners, including visiting international faculty and scholars to the home campus.

GPD works closely with the Office of Study Abroad and the WINS Program to align programs with student demand and to promote internationalization across the Webster network.
