The International Leadership Coordinating Committee coordinates activities with all of the elements at Adelphi working to actualize the University goal of increased relevance in a changing world. More specifically, the committee proposes guidelines and priorities for the University’s international activities regarding the following areas: education abroad, international partnerships, international population services, international faculty development, internationalization of the curriculum and cocurricular activities. The committee reports to the provost.
