Councils and Committees
The University System of Georgia sponsors a variety of councils and committees that support collaboration and coordination in international education. The System encourages institutions to work together to accomplish goals and develop programs that may be difficult for an individual college or university to achieve or sustain independently.
System Council on International Education (SCIE)
Created in 1998, SCIE is the USG’s primary international education governance advisory board. It is composed of representatives appointed by the presidents of each of the System’s 35 institutions. Council members serve two-year terms and are the official liaisons for all Regents’ communications and program initiatives.
Three committees focus on the primary functions of international education and bring policy recommendations to the SCIE for formal action. The committees play a key role in strengthening international programs across the System, and all interested faculty and staff are eligible and encouraged to participate in their meetings and activities.

- Committee on International Students and Scholars - open to all USG faculty and staff interested in promoting and supporting international students and scholars on USG campuses.
