Advisory Board

Established in the Spring of 2000, ISA's Academic Advisory Board has proven to be a valued asset to our organization. The Board serves as a means to clearly understand and accurately respond to the needs of the institutions and students with whom we work. The Board is constituted by up to twenty-five members, each voluntarily serving a three-year term. Board members provide valuable advice regarding matters such as program development, quality assurance and student health and safety, and security concerns. In addition, a special committee of ISA's Advisory Board assists with the process of reviewing scholarship applications and determining recipients. An Executive Committee of the Board made up of no more than five board members also engages with ISA leadership regarding our mission, goals and provides additional assessments of ISA programs and operations. The Board is of tremendous value to ISA and we applaud each member for the time and effort that they contribute to ISA's development in the ever-evolving world of international education.
