The Faculty Advisory Council on International Education (FACIE)  serves as an advisory body to the Office of Global Education and to the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs. In Academic Year 2016-17, the committee will review the structural and programmatic mechanisms surrounding study abroad programs, Maymesters, and new study abroad opportunities.

 Charge: 

FACIE, the Faculty Advisory Council on International Education, serves as an advisory body to the Office of Global Education and to the Vice Provost for Learning and Residential Affairs.  During academic year 2016-17, FACIE should investigate the structural and programmatic support necessary for Maymesters to be seen as a university-wide enterprise; investigate further the pros and cons of leaves of absence for study abroad programs, and review and recommend ways to optimize the mechanisms to add or remove study abroad programs from the campus roster.  FACIE also serves as a communication conduit for programmatic review; new programs (either provider-based or home-grown) should be vetted through FACIE prior to school-based review and governance decisions.
