ACC International Academic Collaborative (IAC)
The ACC International Academic Collaborative is a joint effort to expand study abroad opportunities and to realize the potential of global collaborations for research and service.
Athletics has brought together 15 global universities. In 1999 the presidents decided to encourage collaborations among other areas of the university, especially academics. The IAC coordinates these collaborations. Funded by a portion of the revenue from the ACC football championship (and administered directly by the presidents), the IAC emphasizes international and global affairs, especially study abroad and research in areas of the world where It isn’t feasible for a single university to sustain a full program. Other collaborative areas are Ph.D. student exchanges, a roundtable of chief technology officers, periodic conference calls among chief procurement officers, and an annual conference where undergraduate research projects are presented. Faculty and staff from the ACC communities who would like to champion other inter-institutional groups, programs, and/or roundtables should contact me.
