In February 2016 the Faculty approved new bylaws for this committee (previously known as the Study Abroad Committee and as the International Studies Curriculum and Academic Policy Committee) .
This is an advisory committee to the Dean and the Faculty Affairs Committee, mandated to provide support and guidance to A&S faculty initiatives in international studies. The committee has three main functions:
- Support and encourage innovation and coordination in faculty efforts to internationalize the curriculum.
- Promote prudent liability and risk-management practices in all faculty-student initiatives that involve international field experiences by facilitating faculty interaction with the campus agencies designated to deal with such issues.
- Exercise oversight of A&S study-abroad programs administered by the Reves Center as specified by the framework agreement between A&S and Reves.
