Internal Advisory Committee (IAC)

The Internal Advisory Committee (IAC) includes high-ranking research administrators from participating Great Plains IDeA-CTR Network institutions.


The IAC meets to advise and assist Dr. Rizzo and the Steering Committee on matters related to maintaining our shared mission, identifying common interests, establishing effective support for researchers in our network, overcoming administrative obstacles, developing and implementing assessment procedures, and other important issues. While they serve in an advisory role only with no voting powers, the IAC is instrumental in achieving goals when problems arise at any institution.
