Global Education Steering Committee

The Global Steering Committee was appointed by the Provost and has representatives from all colleges and other constituent groups on campus committed to global education initiatives. It serves as a coordinating and organizing entity to advance communication among all areas of the University relative to global education and programs. This committee is charged with advising in the development of global efforts and coordinating to maximize university resources. The Global Steering Committee also serves as advisory in the development of potential strategic international partnerships with other universities and assists in communicating global initiatives university-wide. Overall, the committee will work to implement recommendations articulated by the Global Task Force and JCAP towards internationalizing the University.
