- Faculty Senate International Programs Committee: The Faculty Senate International Programs Committee (commonly called "IP") is a Faculty Senate standing committee whose role is to explore internationally-related topics and issues for the UWRF campus. The IP reviews education abroad course and program proposals, explores faculty leader topics (compensation, selection, etc.), examines issues relating to international students, etc., to manage and maintain standards and make recommendations to the campus regarding international programs. The IP also strategizes ways to internationalize the campus as a whole, and acts as an advisory body to the Office of International Education. Faculty/staff members will serve three-year terms with approximately one-third being appointed each year.
- Year of...Involvement: One of the three goals of the UW-River Falls Strategic Plan, Pathway to
Distinction, is Global Education and Engagement. In 2013, UW-River
Falls initiated the "Year of . . .", an exciting program to help
meet that global education and engagement goal. The "Year Of" program
allows faculty, students, and community participants to break down
stereotypes and connect across cultures. During the year, various
educational and cultural activities will highlight a specific country
and engage faculty and staff members, students and others in raising
awareness of that country. Faculty and staff can be involved in Year of initiatives in a variety of ways - volunteering on the planning committee, organizing an event, arranging for a guest speaker, and so on. Some limited funding has been available to support programming in the past; check with the current Year of organizers (follow the "Year of" link) to find out what is possible.
