IES Abroad's General Conference and the academic governance committees play an important role in supporting IES Abroad's mission by providing direction, academic program development, and review.

The IES Abroad General Conference is made up of member school coordinators and faculty who participate in the academic governance system of IES Abroad via their voting privileges as well as the Academic Council, Curriculum Committee, Institutional Membership Committee, and the Nominations Committee. Additionally, from among the Member schools, one study abroad coordinator is elected by the voting membership to serve a three-year term as Chair of the General Conference. This individual is responsible for representing the Consortium on the IES Abroad Board of Directors.
