GEO Advisory Council Completion Report

The goal of this project was to facilitate increased feedback and communication between
students and the Global Experience Office (GEO). GEO is the office that helps facilitate all global
experiences offered by Northeastern, including study abroad, Dialogue of Civilizations, and international co-op. Academic Affairs Committee Delegate Jamie Nemzer partnered with GEO to launch the inaugural GEO Student Advisory Council. The council is made up of undergraduate student representatives from each academic college and a SGA representative. The SGA representative, in this case Delegate Nemzer, chairs the council. The goal of the council is to provide feedback to GEO on its programs and outreach to students. The council will facilitate close collaboration between students and GEO, which will in turn enable the effective expansion of global opportunities to more students and improved facilitation of global programs by GEO. Moving forward, the advisory council will be an ongoing initiative of the SGA Academic Affairs Committee and Global Experience Office.
