University of Kentucky's Education Abroad Faculty Toolkit
This toolkit has been developed to be used primarily by faculty to aid in the development and implementation of embedded programs (i.e. international components to a course taught on campus) but it also includes helpful information for faculty developing a global seminar where the whole course is taught abroad.

Arizona State University has developed a thorough marketing toolkit for faculty directors to use in their outreach efforts.
