Academic Advisory Board

The role of SAI’s Academic Advisory Board is to offer insight and wisdom to help meet the academic needs of students. The Academic Advisory Board (AAB):

  • provides SAI with pertinent information related to global & local trends that impact study abroad;
  • advises SAI on academic issues; and
  • participates in strategic planning related to academic areas.

AAB members are experienced international education professionals from a wide range of academic disciplines. They are knowledgeable about global concerns, have expertise in curricular and co-curricular programs, and recognize the importance of living and learning abroad.
