The purpose of the INTL-FAC-FORUM Listserv is to disseminate pertinent information to K-State professors regarding faculty-led group study abroad programs and to provide a venue for faculty to collaborate on group study abroad programs. If you are interested in joining the listserv, please contact the Study Abroad Advisor for your college or email abroad@ksu.edu.

Cell Phone

The Faculty Leader (FL) is expected to carry a cell phone for the duration of the program so that in the event of an emergency, the FL can contact the Study Abroad Advisor easily via phone and vice versa. Exceptions can be made for programs conducted in rural areas or countries where GSM or CDMA cell coverage is not available. The Study Abroad Office urges faculty who are interested in conducting programs in countries where cell coverage is not available, to carefully explore the possibility of obtaining a satellite phone or working with a Third-Party Program Provider that can provide a satellite phone.

The Study Abroad Office is able to provide a discount cell phone service to K-State Faculty Leaders and students through PicCell, www.piccellwireless.com/k-state.
