Sage advice : International advisory councils at tertiary education institutions (English)

This research focuses on mapping the landscape of international advisory councils (IACs), a growing phenomenon at tertiary education institutions around the world. The IAC trend is situated at the intersection of internationalization, the launch of excellence initiatives, and the increasing involvementof external actors at the governance level of tertiary education institutions (TEIs). Importantly,the emergence of IACs exemplifies the increased diffusion of internationalization at the governance level of TEIs, mostly universities. However, to this date, no research was constructed to describe, analyze or theorize IACs. In order to meet this gap,members of IACs and representatives of institutions hosting them were interviewed with the purpose of understanding what IACs are, how they are structured,how effectively they operate, and the rationales for their emergence. This paper reports on the findings of the interviews and advances a typology of IACs. Additionally, the study offers suggestions on how the activity of IACs can be improved and considerations useful in creating new IAC structures.
