Advisory Board

CIS Abroad’s Advisory Board was developed to provide our organization with experienced advice and counsel that allows us to continue to develop relevant, high quality education abroad programs that meet the demands of the field.

The following areas are where CIS Abroad believes the Board is able to provide the most relevant advice and much of the work that they do focuses here:

  1. Program design, planning and evaluation
  2. Academic and curricular integration
  3. Risk management
  4. Evaluation and assessment
  5. Marketing and university relations

The Board’s Membership

The membership of the CIS Study Abroad Advisory Board is comprised of experienced international educators from a variety of institutions, most especially from those institutional types that are best served by our organization. Each member is invited to serve based upon recommendations from CIS staff, fellow Board members, and/or colleagues in the field.
