International Coordinating Council

The CSUN International Coordinating Council (ICC) comprises those in administrative roles in the different Divisions of who have direct responsibility for components of CSUN’s work with and services for international students and/or CSUN domestic students taking advantage of opportunities to study and/or do research outside of the US. The members of the ICC are appointed by the CSUN president and divisional vice presidents each June to serve for the upcoming year. Once appointed, members of the ICC can suggest additional members from their units to ensure that those most directly involved with international programs and services at CSUN are invited to the meeting of ICC.

The purpose of ICC is to ensure that there is regular communication, ongoing collaboration, and mutually supportive design of solutions to challenges faces and/or the continuous improvement of CSUN programs and services for international students and CSUN domestic students participating in opportunities to study and/or do research or creative projects abroad as part of the CSUN education experience. The ICC is chaired/facilitated by CSUN’s Senior International Officer. The ICC meets twice a year (once in the Fall Semester and once in the Spring Semester) and prepares a report at the end of those semesters that is broadly shared throughout CSUN and with appropriate other CSU offices. The ICC also often has a number of working groups each year that meet more frequently to move forward on specific assignments for ICC as a whole. Such working groups then report their recommendations/implementation plans to ICC for feedback from the varied perspectives of ICC members. The recommendations/implementation plans refined by feedback from the full ICC membership are then conveyed by the ICC chair to the appropriate CSUN Divisional VP (or designee) to make final decisions about the recommendations/implementation to move CSUN's international capacities, processes, and strategies forward.

The ICC can be convened for additional meetings if warranted.

The ICC works with a focus on CSUN’s international principles and priorities (see Attachment A below) and in keeping with CSUN and CSU policies as well as in compliance with applicable State and Federal laws/policies.
