Proposed International Mobility SIG 

We would like to invite you to fill out this quick online form regarding the establishment of our new SIG within the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES). We are pleased to announce that our SIG proposal which was submitted early 2016 is finally moving along. It wouldn’t be possible without you! So the first order of business to say THANK YOU!

On Thursday, November 9, 2017, we had a meaningful discussion with CIES leadership including President Noah Sobe and SIG committee Chairs Monisha Bajaj and Suzanne Ress. We found the committee to be supportive and encouraging our endeavor. However, there were some valid concerns as pointed out during the meeting. To have the approval of our SIG, we need to meet two conditions:

  • 30 valid CIES members who are also willing to pay additional $10 toward SIG membership,
  • 10 active petitioning members, who will be willing to assume leadership roles in the SIG upon approval. That’s it!

Just in case you would like to know how things have moved along since last years when we submitted our proposal, please follow this link. Now, to ascertain we meet these conditions, we are reaching out to you as our potential members. Please spare a minute to take part in this survey to indicate that you are in!
