Inaugurated in January 2023, the International Program Advisory Council (IPAC) is an exemplary group of international education professionals charged with counseling CIEE leadership to carry forward CIEE's 75-year history of delivering the highest quality study abroad and international education programs. 

IPAC advises CIEE leadership in three distinct areas:

Thought Leadership

To foster an inclusive international educational experience for students from all backgrounds and academic majors, IPAC considers emerging trends in higher education and international academic programs to address traditional and recommend new methods of delivering international education.

Program Quality

IPAC recommends program quality improvements to enhance academic quality, intercultural learning, student learning, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and student health and safety.

Program Development

To promote academically rigorous and culturally-rich programming, IPAC submits recommendations on program development, including program elements, locations, and delivery techniques.


IPAC is a collaborative body of seasoned leaders in international education selected from CIEE’s partner colleges and universities. IPAC members are experienced international program administrators, faculty, and deans from schools that use CIEE programs to support their international program goals.
