The Committee on International Programs and International Operations Council work hand-in-hand with International Affairs to advise and implement university-wide internationalization policies, regulations and programs. Together, the committees provide leadership and coordination to implement NC State’s global strategic plan.
Committee on International Programs
The Committee on International Programs (CIP) is an official University Standing Committee with membership appointed by the Chancellor. Faculty from each of NC State’s colleges meet monthly and are responsible for advising the Vice Provost for International Affairs on policy and regulation. Members serve as key contacts for each college to provide a two-way flow of communication between International Affairs and faculty across the university. CIP coordinates the annual Jackson Rigney International Service Award and the Internationalization Seed Grant program. Learn more.
OIA’s role is to initiate and create some of the opportunities, play a supporting role, but in the end these goals or objectives… can’t be achieved unless the faculty step up and do the work.”
— Dr. Rudolph Seracino, Committee on International Programs Chair (2015-2016)
International Operations Council
The International Operations Council (IOC) is coordinated directly through the Office of International Affairs and membership consists of college or unit leaders who are appointed by their Deans. Members lead program development and implementation of NC State’s international strategic plan for their respective colleges and units. IOC is a key avenue to ensuring that global perspectives are integrated into all aspects of NC State’s teaching, research, extension and engagement. IOC coordinates the annual Outstanding Global Engagement Award and reviews strategic initiative grant proposals, such as the East Africa Strategic Initiative funding program.
Regional Engagement Teams
International Affairs also coordinates campus-wide advisory groups consisting of expert faculty interested in specific regions around the globe. Complete the Regional Engagement Team Interest Form to get involved.
