Commission

The Commission on International Education is a 15-member panel of professional educators and one public member elected by institutional delegates to represent our diverse membership. Commissioners serve for three-year terms (renewable once).

Responsibilities:

Using the established CIE Standards and Principles, commissioners meet four times a year to review Visiting Team Reports for continued and initial accreditation, along with progress reports, five year-reports, special reports and preliminary and preparatory reports. All reports that affect our candidate and accredited schools go before the commission for their input, discussion and decision regarding the status of a school's membership/accreditation.
