Faculty Advisory Committee on International Education (FACIE)
The Faculty Advisory Committee on International Education (FACIE) focused on research and scholarship related to study abroad. The group also explored synergistic areas of overlap that enhance the student experience at Vanderbilt. During the 2017-18 academic year, this committee worked diligently on developing a definition for immersion that identifies meaningful measures for immersion-appropriate study abroad experiences for all students.
FACIE's recommendations will help guide student involvement as it relates to international engagement. To that end, the Global Education Office (GEO) will work in close collaboration with the Office of Immersion Resources to identify study abroad experiences that would satisfy Immersion requirements and use their expertise to help students before, during, and after their time abroad.
