International Advisory Committee

In spring 2007 Provost Reif charged the International Advisory Committee (IAC) "with designing a strategy to target countries and regions where MIT should focus its international efforts and identifying cross-cutting topics and themes". The IAC is co-chaired by Associate Provost Philip S. Khoury and Vice President Claude R. Canizares. The International Advisory Committee is charged to:

  1. Contribute to the design of an international strategy for the Institute through direct consultation with the faculty and the administration.
  2. Advise the senior administration on the value and appropriateness of proposals for international institutional initiatives and partnerships.
  3. Review all ongoing international institutional initiatives and partnerships and report the review findings to the senior administration. Such reviews should normally take place on an annual basis, subject to the discretion of the IAC. Also review and assess the accomplishments of these programs when they come to a close in order to apply accumulated experience to future initiatives.
  4. Report regularly to the President, Provost and FPC and, from time to time, to the MIT Faculty at large on the IAC’s progress in the design of an international strategy for MIT and on the progress of new and already established international institutional initiatives and partnerships.
