USCB's International Program Committee 

USCB’s International Programs Committee (IPC) serves as the all-campus coordinating body that manages, organizes and coordinates global university activities. One of the most active and visible committees on campus, IPC is made up of faculty, staff and a student representative. The main IPC goal is to elevate and make vibrant USCB’s international impact across  academic and campus endeavors. The IPC sponsors International Week each year.
