Comprehensive Internationalization Committee

Faculty at DePaul are encouraged to get involved with Global Engagement in many ways. In this edition of the newsletter we call attention to the Comprehensive Internationalization Committee (CIC). This is a University Committee, created by Academic Affairs, co-chaired by the Associate Provost for Global Engagement and Online Learning and a faculty member, currently Melissa Ockerman, College of Education. All ten Colleges and Schools are represented on CIC, and membership of the Committee is determined by Faculty Council through Committee on Committees (COC). You can see the complete charge of the committee and a list of current members here. Among other duties, CIC reviews and approves the travel portion of First Year Abroad programs, reviews and funds Global Learning Experience (GLE) proposals, and advises Study Abroad on practices and procedures. If you have a keen interest in internationalization of our university, consider serving on CIC. Calls for new members are usually circulated by COC in late spring for the following academic year.
