International Coordinating Committee (ICC)

The International Coordinating Committee (ICC) supports the MIT community in planning, negotiating, and implementing international activities.

Overview of the ICC

The ICC was formed in 2012 to assist the MIT community in the coordination of international activities and strengthen the support provided by MIT’s administrative offices and functions.

Over the years, the scope and complexity of MIT’s international activities has continued to grow, and each country and project can raise unique questions and concerns related to risk; safety and security; legal, tax, and financial compliance; and culture. The ICC helps faculty, students, and staff navigate and resolve these complex issues, as well as facilitate the MIT community’s international negotiations and initiate projects to improve MIT’s international policies and procedures.

Who is in the ICC?
