The function of the Foreign Programs Subcommittee, a subcommittee of the Educational Policy Committee, is to oversee the Tufts' programs abroad. The subcommittee acts as a liaison between the administrators of foreign programs and the Tufts students and faculty. It has the authority to consider and make recommendations concerning policy issues relating to foreign programs not affiliated with this university. The subcommittee reviews the mounting numbers of student petitions for credit transfer from non-Tufts programs and considers proposals for expanding Tufts programs into new countries and cultures (such as the Arab world, and Southeast Asia). The deliberations of the subcommittee are informed by case summaries prepared by the staff of the Office of Programs Abroad.
The subcommittee consists of nine faculty members and the following ex officio members without vote: director of the International Relations Program, the associate dean of the Office of Programs Abroad, the director of the International Center, and the director of Tufts European Center. All voting-eligible faculty members are able to serve on this committee. Members are appointed to five-year terms.
Committee members attend three meetings per semester, each lasting about ninety minutes, in which the committee reviews annual reports from Tufts programs, including tracking enrollments. This committee is open to all full-time voting-eligible faculty members, including professors of the practice, lecturers, and senior lecturers.
