Program Highlights

  • SRJC is a member of the Northern California Study Abroad Consortium, a four-district alliance consisting of Sonoma County, Los Rios, Diablo Valley, and San Mateo districts.
  • Usually about 30 students from each college and one instructor from each college are sent abroad.
  • The Consortium signs contracts, usually with the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS), who make all of the travel and field trip arrangements. They also provide 24 hour a day, 7 days a week emergency contact service.
  • A typical teaching assignment for full-time faculty is four classes, or about 12 units; however, full-time faculty members are compensated for a 100% load for the semester abroad.
  • SRJC faculty members serve as the instructor of record for SRJC students enrolled in the Life and Culture class; however, this class is usually taught as a combination of guest lecturers and field trips.
  • For adjunct faculty, teaching loads may be from 67% to 134% with an annualized contract. Adjunct faculty members are paid their usual hourly rate of pay.
