Before You Leave


You will need the approval of your department chair, so please have a discussion on how you plan to cover the other courses in your teaching load while you are in the Dominican Republic. 

Creighton University is committed to ensuring that all faculty participating in this immersion and study abroad experience are well prepared for traveling and offering their courses in the unique setting of the Dominican Republic. Faculty members who are selected to teach a course will be provided with a pre-departure checklist and arrival guide providing detailed information and deadlines on travel reservations, immunizations, insurance and other preparations from the Global Engagement office. You must make sure that you have a U.S. Passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the end of you designated time in the Dominican Republic.
