The Office of Global Engagement works with a variety of important committees and groups across campus. These committees offer recommendations, support and guidance, and serve as links to the university's five colleges and various university offices. These committees are dedicated to carrying out the mission of the Office of Global Engagement through creative thinking, teamwork, and interoffice coordination. Committee members work tirelessly to promote international programs and services to Clemson students, faculty, and staff.
Campus Internationalization Task Force
The Campus Internationalization Task Force examines the current status of internationalization at Clemson and provides recommendations for expansion, improvement, and implementation of internationalization across campus. The Task Force presents its findings and recommendations as crucial pillars in support of Clemson's mission "to develop students' communication and critical-thinking skills, ethical judgment, global awareness, and scientific and technological knowledge" and to achieve top-20 public university ranking. Even as the university, and indeed the nation, faces difficult fiscal and administrative decisions, the Task Force underscores the need for students to develop global competencies and cross-cultural knowledge and sensitivities that enable them to respond to a climate of constant change that reaches every corner of the globe--from Clemson to cities and towns, large and small, on every continent. Read their full report from March 2009.

They also assist OIA in coordinating information distribution, and helping to ensure that university policies and procedures related to study abroad are communicated to and carried out within the colleges.
