College Advisory Committee

The College Advisory Committee provides advice and direction to the Office of Global Initiatives on existing programs and services supporting the international mobility of students and faculty members.  It also assists with the evaluation and development of new initiatives to better serve the needs of the campus as we continue to expand our international scope.  On a very practical level, the committee serves as a conduit for communications with students and faculty members on opportunities for international study, teaching and research. Committee members will also have the opportunity to serve on various subcommittees or task forces aimed at implementing particular institutionally critical global initiatives.

Members appointed to the committee are asked to serve a three-year term.  The committee formally meets once a semester, but members are invited to participate in other events and activities throughout the academic year.
