Overview and Mission

ARAMFO Foundation was founded to facilitate the Faculty-Led Travel Courses to help professors exercise their respective disciplines in a real world context. The ARAMFO Foundation works to facilitate short-term Faculty-Led Travel Courses, around the world, to promote both multiculturalism and academia. Each professor or instructor that leads a course abroad has the freedom to design their own syllabus and can work with the ARAMFO team to customize the trip itinerary and dates for their academic requirements.

Professor/Instructor makes the Syllabus

ARAMFO Foundation does not create the syllabi on behalf of professors, but rather, helps them to create the international trip to the desired location that matches their disciplines and curricula. Professors need to design their syllabi as a regular course. Then they can collaborate with the ARAMFO team to make the trip a practical part in the course design. Professors might choose to offer the trip as a travel course for 3 to 6 credit hours (as an example).

Customizing the Trip

Besides, we help professors to offer their travel programs during any time of the academic year.

Working with Study Abroad

ARAMFO works with Study Abroad offices to make each travel course the best it can be for the students and faculty. We welcome to collaborate with any Study Abroad that would like to help us to promote multiculturalism and increase the number of students traveling abroad.
