New  Academic Council on International Programs (ACIP) – one faculty representative

The Academic Council on International Programs (ACIP) has one vacancy.

Tenure track or tenured faculty and academic administrators who are concerned and knowledgeable about international education efforts are eligible.  The term is three years.  The appointment began in July 2017 and is for three years.

The ACIP holds two two-day meetings a year.  Members of the ACIP serve in a dual capacity as the primary representative of the International Programs on campus and as representatives of the campus as an advisory group in forming policy for International Programs.  Campus representatives play a key role in promoting International Programs on campuses, advising resident director applicants, and in directing the campus student selection effort.  The standing committees of the ACIP require substantial time commitments from representatives in activities that include the selection of resident directors, academic program review and student selection.  Following long-standing practice, the Office of International Programs will pay travel expenses for one meeting and the campus (department of representative) is responsible for the other.

The Academic Senate Office has an ACIP Handbook on file.  The handbook gives detailed information about the ACIP and the representative’s responsibilities.

Interested individuals should send a brief statement of qualifications along with their availability to senate@cpp.edu by Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at noon
