The International Advisory Committee (IAC)

The International Advisory Committee was established by the Vice-President (Research & International) as a standing committee of the University of Manitoba. The committee’s work includes providing advice to the vice-president on issues related to international research, student and faculty mobility, international partnerships, support for international students, immigration, and travel risk management. The committee may also create working groups as needed to address particular policy and procedure concerns related to internationalization.

Regional Advisory Groups (RAGs)

Regional Advisory Groups form part of the governance structure of international activities at the University. They are multidisciplinary groups comprised of faculty, staff, and students with interests and expertise in a particular region. Four RAG Chairs sit on the International Advisory Committee, providing feedback related to their region of expertise, as well as guidance on the internationalization efforts of the University as a whole. 

If you would like to initiate a  Regional Advisory Group or request a letters of participation as a RAG member, please contact the international officer for the appropriate region.
