The Education Abroad Advisory Council advises the office on issues related to education abroad programming and support and issues related to campus internationalization efforts. The Council includes representatives from each of the institution's academic units, determined by the units themselves, as well as staff from units that work with the Office of Education Abroad. The Council examines issues related to study abroad including developing guidelines for program directors, scholarship distribution, and issues related to student and faculty support. The group also consults on developing events related to the promotion of international perspectives on campus. Colleges and departments determine membership from their units.
