UWM International Council
With representation from all schools and colleges, the UWM Libraries, and other units at the Provost's discretion, the UWM International Council is charged with implementing the recommendations encompassed in the report of the UWM Task Force on Internationalization (Advancing Internationalization at UWM: Fostering Success, Facilitating Growth and Expanding Horizons in the 21st Century University, December 2009). The Council is doing this by::
- Planning and implementing strategies to strengthen the international dimensions of teaching, research, and outreach across the UWM curriculum;
- Establishing institutional internationalization goals and assessing progress toward goals; and
- Fostering information-sharing and coordination of initiatives across campus units.
The International Council members have been appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs in consultation with the Vice Provost for International Education. The Council consists of senior university administrators and faculty with the vision, authority, and resources to undertake strategic international education planning on behalf of the university.
The Council began meeting in March 2011, and will meet on a regular basis throughout the academic year.
