International Advisory Council

The UTIA International Advisory Council (IAC) serves to advise and provide strategic planning support for the UTIA Smith Center in international programs across teaching, research and extension/outreach, and to liaise with UTIA units about ongoing and upcoming international activities and opportunities.

The IAC is comprised of faculty members at UTIA who hold appointments in the Herbert College of Agriculture, CVM, AgResearch and/or UT Extension. There are 12 members of the IAC; 10 from Herbert/AgResearch/UT Extension and 2 from CVM. IAC members are appointed at the invitation of the UTIA Director for International Programs, and with the approval of each faculty member’s department head.

Term lengths
Initial members of the IAC participate for term lengths of one, two or three years, in order to stagger rotations off the committee. Terms may be renewed. A member leaving the IAC will work with the OIP to identify potential faculty from the same unit to rotate into the Council.

The IAC meets with the OIP twice per year, once in Fall and once in Spring semester.
