MCC International Education Advisory Board
The International Advisory Board is a small group of informed community leaders, administration, faculty and students who provide advice and advocacy on issues that will help shape the direction of global programs and initiatives at Middlesex. Specifically, Board members will:
- Provide advice and expertise on existing global education program improvement
- Suggest new training programs with global focus to better serve employers
- Recommend part time and/or guest lecturers from industry with particular expertise for MCC
- Review and critique relevant written and online materials
- Serve as a general steering committee for MCC’s Global Education initiatives and programs
The Advisory Board meets once each Fall and Spring semester with each meeting scheduled for approximately 1.5 hours. Board members occasionally may be asked to provide input or feedback via e-mail between the scheduled meetings.
