Global Initiatives Committee

The Committee on Global Initiatives assists with the recruitment, retention and support of international academic advising professionals through developing and implementing strategies and activities. The Committee will work in partnership with the EO and other committees. The committee will assist the EO in determining professional development opportunities for our global members, which may include but are not limited to research, publications, webcasts, symposiums, institutes, and conferences. The Committee will assist, if needed, in the planning and implementing of the opportunities.
