Department International Liaisons


Department International Liaisons for 2023/2024

The departmental international liaison brings ideas, information and the co-creative conversations to the academic departmental level where specific ideas and options can be put into practice – this is an essential role to moving from possibility to reality. 

There is one international departmental liaison per academic department. The liaison is nominated by the academic department chair and approved by the dean of the college in which the academic department in question resides.

Liaisons serve for a renewable one-year term for a maximum of six consecutive terms. After a break in service of two years, a liaison that has served more than six consecutive years can be again nominated for by the chair for the role.
