Amherst has a number of exchange opportunities for faculty members at one of our institutional partners abroad. There are currently two short-term and two long-term options:
The Amherst-Doshisha Faculty Exchange, in partnership with Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan, and the Amherst-Ashoka Faculty Exchange, in partnership with Ashoka University in Delhi, India, offers faculty members an opportunity to give two or three public lectures at these partner universities. Please see the Dean of Faculty's website for more information and for instructions on how to apply.
Amherst has a semester exchange program with Yale-NUS College in Singapore, a semester or yearlong exchange program with Underwood International College at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea (UIC Yonsei), and a spring semester exchange program with Doshisha University. The Dean of Faculty's website has more information and instructions on how to apply.
Unique among models for faculty exchange, Amherst's longterm exchanges count as teaching semesters and faculty do not participate while on sabbatical. In addition to information sheets created specifically for Yale-NUS Faculty Exchange and UIC Yonsei Faculty Exchange, we have tried to address general questions in these FAQs.
