CEPP Subcommittee:
Advisory Committee on Off-Campus Programs (ACOP)

Charge (revised September 2013)

The CEPP sub-committee on off-campus study - the Advisory Committee on Off-Campus Programs - serves in an advisory capacity for the office of Off-Campus Study & Exchanges on issues defined by CEPP and/or OCSE. As an advisory body, ACOP crafts its agenda in direct and regular consultation with OCSE, and OCSE solicits advice from ACOP on a broad range of off-campus study abroad. Off-campus study is an integral aspect of a Skidmore education: the college strives to develop a compelling link between students' academic and co-curricular work before and after the off-campus study experience and their work while away, in order to embed off-campus study in our students' overall educational experience.

ACOP reports regularly to CEPP, periodically seeks CEPP’s input, and issues an annual report in consultation with the office of Off-Campus Study & Exchanges.

The Advisory Committee (ACOP) consists of the director of OCSE and one faculty member who serves as chair of ACOP, typically appointed by CEPP for a two-year term.  ACOP is charged with the following responsibilities:

The CEPP sub-committee on study abroad - the Advisory Committee on International Study - will serve in an advisory capacity for the Office of International Programs as Skidmore implements a new structure for overseas study. The plan for re-structuring emphasizes closer integration of the academic programs on campus with the programs our students attend overseas. With this in mind, Skidmore is moving to a "Partner Program" list. The list will be developed in conjunction with the departments and programs to ensure coordination between course work completed overseas and major/minor/graduation requirements at Skidmore. More importantly, Skidmore strives to develop a stronger link between students' academic and co-curricular work before and after study abroad and their work while abroad. The goal is to embed overseas study into the students' overall educational experience at Skidmore.
