Interfaces of Global Change Curriculum Committee (IG3C)

Initiated in the fall of 2018, the Interfaces of Global Change Curriculum Committee (IG3C) is the primary entity responsible for visioning, oversight, and implementation of the IGC IGEP curriculum.  Primary duties entail visioning, planning, and delivering of the annual fall and spring seminar courses and the capstone course offered every other year.  These duties include ensuring continuity of existing high-quality graduate programming, as well as ideation and visioning to meet the evolving programmatic needs of the growing, diverse IGC IGEP student population.
