The SOE International Committee strives to:

  • Foster a welcoming and supportive environment for SOE international students, visitors, and scholars: The committee provides support and network opportunities for SOE international students, visitors, and scholars; and offers education and awareness regarding international access, equity, and support issues. 
  • Promote SOE international collaborative opportunities:  The committee offers resources and support for SOE faculty, staff, and students who are interested in leading and/or participating in study-abroad programs, exchange programs, and other international collaborative teaching, research, and service opportunities. 

The SOE International committee serves as an advisory group to the Dean. It is comprised of faculty, staff, and students from the School of Education as well as key persons from the University.
