Faculty and Staff Resources
As our world becomes increasingly globalized, International Programs seeks to support Lane Community College to internationalize curriculum, serve nonnative speakers of English and international students and create study abroad opportunities. We are committed to working together with faculty and staff to support professional development opportunities and resources across this spectrum.

Professional Development Opportunities for Faculty and Staff
Northwest International Education Association (NIEA)
The Northwest International Education Association (NIEA) supports the internationalization of the curriculum in the northwest. They offer mini-grants to support curriculum internationalization, a two-day annual summer institute for community college faculty in partnership with University of Washington's Center for Global Studies, and can provide J visa support for hosting faculty, scholars and teaching assistants.
The deadline for mini grants has passed for the 2016-2017 year. Please watch for 2017-2018 information in the winter of 2017
The 2016 Community College Master Teacher Institute will be held July 14 and 15. Stipends for attendance and travel are available! Click here to apply.
Oregon East Asia Network
The Oregon East Asia Network (OEAN) links the faculty of ten different research institutions of higher education and six different community and government organizations for the purpose of promoting cooperation, collaboration, and creativity among and between East Asianists in the region. It is sponsored by the University of Oregon’s U.S. Department of Education Title VI East Asia National Resource Center.
Funding for activities that foster collaboration and cooperation between Oregon East Asianists is available. Some possible activities that could qualify for funding include:
- Inviting someone from the network to speak on an East Asia topic at your institution.
- Travel funding to attend a conference or event at another network institution.
- Funds to co-sponsor events hosted by other network institutions.
- Research Interest Groups, including the purchase of reading materials and assistance with travel costs of network members.
Transnational and/or interdisciplinary activities focused on East Asia are encouraged. To apply for OEAN funding, please complete our online application. If you have any questions about OEAN, please email Holly Lakey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
