  1. The Study Abroad Programs Committee (SAPC) requires member and chair with a good deal of experience in the area of study abroad and in the deliberations of the committee. While new blood is good, so is experience; we have had some difficulty recruiting the latter kind of member of late. Thus we respectfully request that the committee be removed from the list of committees that continue to have term limits attached.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.
