DS2019 Department Chair Authorization Form
By completing this form, you acknowledge the following:
- We (Department Chair and Faculty member) understand that a primary purpose of the Exchange Visitor Program is to foster the exchange of ideas between Americans and foreign nationals to simulate international collaborative teaching and research efforts.
- We also understand that the exchange of professors and research scholars promotes mutual enrichment and connections between research and educational institutions in the United States and foreign countries. It does so by providing foreign professors and research scholars the opportunity to engage in research, teaching and lecturing with their American colleagues, to participate actively in cross-cultural activities with the Americans, and ultimately to share with their fellow citizens their experiences and increased knowledge about the United States and their fields.
- Our department is inviting this individual for the period indicated.
Note: This form should be completed by the chair of the hosting department only after the Prospective Scholar Information Form has been completed by the scholar, and the Request for Form DS-2019 has been completed by the hosting department.
