Logistics and Itinerary Development

The first step of program development is to outline all of the components that make up a seminar/FIP (e.g. guest lecturers, site visits, classroom or lecture space). BOSP works with third-party program providers to coordinate the logistics for every seminar/FIP. Faculty Leaders will complete the Logistics Development and Itinerary Form with as many details as possible. This form will then be used to request proposals from program providers .
