Global Outreach

Provost's Global Advisory Council

The Provost’s Global Advisory Council (PGAC) is a university-wide committee that advises the Office of the Provost and the university community on matters relating to education abroad, international collaborative academic programs and opportunities for faculty and students to engage globally and helps ensure that our international activities are closely tied to and support the strategic priorities of our academic units. The PGAC plays a definitive role in assessing the institutional impact of international partnerships and recommending subsequent action. Members are designated by VCU deans.
