International Relations Coordinator
Faculty Committee Members
The IR program is governed by an interdisciplinary faculty committee made up of about thirty faculty from six disciplines. In addition, one of the committee members acts as the faculty coordinator for the major. All major curriculum decisions are made by the faculty committee, which conducts most of its work by email communication. The faculty coordinator reports on the status of the major to the committee and initiates any committee discussions of curriculum changes. Most of the assessment of the major is done by the IR coordinator through competency exams and surveys of graduates. The faculty committee reviews the results of these exams and surveys and make recommendations for needed changes. The results of the assessment work are communicated annually to all faculty affiliated with the IR major. At that time the faculty comment on the assessment results and those same results inform decisions regarding the curriculum structure of the major.
