International Studies Steering Committee

The purpose of the International Studies Steering Committee is to (1) advise the Center’s director on academic and strategic planning; (2) integrate an international perspective across the curriculum; (3) promote study abroad and international faculty exchanges; (4) support extracurricular activities that stress an international dimension; and (5) nominate to the provost and appropriate dean tenured faculty for the academic designation of “Professor of International Studies,” which will be an honorary designation that will be added to the nominee’s regular academic appointment and published in the University catalog, e.g., Professor of Sociology and International Studies.
