This case study explored the motivations faculty in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Oklahoma State University have for developing and leading short-term study abroad courses or experiences. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and document reviews. Individual interviews were conducted after faculty had led a study abroad trip. The interviews explored faculty reflections on the outcomes of the experience. The documents reviewed included course syllabi, curriculum vitae, and the university’s international strategic plan. Previous experiences, student inspirations, and preexisting structures were the three themes that emerged from personal interviews regarding faculty’s motivation for developing study abroad courses. Specifically, faculty were motivated to provide students with international human capital and to network and build connections.
