Deans and Directors International Programs Advisory Committee

The purpose of the advisory committee and goal of the meetings are to provide advice, input, and ideas for the office of Global Affairs on key issues in the international arena, as well as to determine how to best serve the offices, departments, and programs of each member and the campus at large. The group also reviews international functions that take place on campus, including agreement signing, receptions, visitors from abroad, and visits by the Chancellor, Vice Provost and others to international campuses.
