IPAC represents the next chapter of CIEE’s long-serving and industry-leading advisory group, the Academic Consortium Board (ACB). Established in 1994, the ACB provided more than 25 years of guidance to CIEE, helping lead the field by supplying the very best quality assurance and oversight for study abroad programs. We applaud and extend our very sincere appreciation to the scores of hard-working members of the ACB, past and present. Your service to CIEE and the field has been extraordinary.

IPAC will begin its work with a strategic planning summit in Merida, Mexico, in February 2023, and then convene for its first business meetings in Berlin, Germany, in June 2023.

On behalf of all of us at CIEE, as well as the faculty and students from 600+ colleges that we serve each year, we wish to extend to each member of IPAC our deep respect and appreciation for your service.
