Global Engineering Programs Council (GEPC)

The Global Engineering Programs Council (GEPC) consists of representatives from Engineering Units and programs and serves as a focal point for coordinating global activities across the College. The purpose of the GEPC is to share information and best practices, discuss, and help shape the policies that affect international programs and activities across the College. This includes study abroad programs, global development and service learning, research partnerships, and strategic initiatives. The GEPC meets on a monthly basis during academic semesters.
