UMAIE courses offer a unique opportunity for undergraduate faculty by working with students from different campuses. These students may have diverse learning styles and academic perspectives, adding variety to the teaching experience. Because travel professionals manage all travel arrangements (transportation, accommodations and budgets), faculty are free to devote the bulk of their energies to teaching and learning.
