International Advisory Board


History

The Texas A&M International Advisory Board (IAB) was founded in 1992 by then President William H. Mobley to assist Texas A&M University in developing global initiatives, supporting student international experiences and promoting its role as a world class teaching, research and service university. Restructuring in 2010-2014, realigned the international efforts of Texas A&M University from a singular central office to a focus on activities of the faculty and their colleges with centralized student and faculty services, global partnership services, and processes to ensure the student, program and partnership success. The IAB, in partnership with the newly formed International Programs Committee of Faculty Senate, reaffirmed this purpose and pledge. 

Mission

The Texas A&M International Advisory Board pledges to utilize individual member expertise and personal networks of connections around the world to: 
  • Enrich Texas A&M students’ cultural awareness and global acumen
  • Advance Texas A&M’s faculty scholarship through mutually beneficial partnerships
  • Recognize faculty and student excellence in international efforts and student support
  • Assist Texas A&M University’s administration in globalizing its mission, vision, goals and objectives
  • Promote Texas A&M globally as a preeminent higher education institution

Purpose

The International Advisory Board, composed of about 40 members from business, government, education, and other areas, was created to advance the University on international program development and areas of emphasis. Its members participate in the University's international activities and assist in building an international network for the University, as well as promoting awareness of international programs and issues.
