Early this fall, the Chicago School of Professional Psychology launched the Internationalization Task Force, a committee consisting of faculty, deans and senior administrators working to advance the school’s internationalization initiatives. TCSPP President Dr. Michele Nealon- Woods has appointed Dr. Orlando Taylor, vice president of academic affairs and D.C. Campus president as chair, and Emily Karem, associate vice president, international services, to co-chair this national committee.
“This task force will allow us to capitalize on the successful international programming launched this past year and ensure alignment with our strategic growth plan,” said Dr. Nealon-Woods. “These programs set us apart, give us a global footprint and are a crucial step towards realizing our goal to become the premier school of professional psychology in the nation and the world.”
Each TCSPP Campus as well as online-blended programs will be represented on the Task Force by an International Lead, creating a nationally aligned force for international programs and initiatives. The International Lead will head up local Centers for International Studies, the on-campus department that from this point forward will be responsible for the very popular Power of One study abroad courses and other internationally focused programming.
The Task Force’s first major activity of the year will be a celebration of International Education Week , scheduled for November 14th through November 18th of this year. International Leads will be working with faculty, students and staff to develop an agenda of activities highlighting the importance of international education.
“International Education Week will be the first of many important activities that this committee will sponsor, said Dr. Orlando Taylor. “Each member is committed to playing a role in our school’s internationalization and is dedicated to examining closely those activities, policies, training programs and funding streams necessary to become a truly global school. I am fully committed to the mission of the committee and am honored to work with this esteemed group.”
