Member school faculty participate in the IES Abroad Curriculum Committee, which reviews all IES Abroad syllabi and compliance with the standards set forth by the IES Abroad MAP©, as well as in several other academic task forces.

A minimum of five member representatives, one of whom should be an elected member of the Academic Council, appointed to three-year staggered terms by the President in consultation with the Chair of the General Conference; one voting member from the IES Abroad School of Record—members are normally Coordinators with advanced degrees and faculty appointments; one IES Abroad Chicago staff member to serve as Secretary; non-Coordinators may be appointed to ensure representation in crucial fields—may be reappointed to serve as Chair.
