Participation in the consortium requires the following commitment from member institutions:
- At least one representative to attend an annual meeting of consortium member institutions which will alternate between the U.S. and Indonesia.
- Maintain a list of areas of potential collaboration, current study abroad programs, and scholarships, including the contact information of the faculty member(s) involved.
- Where possible, provide support in the form of scholarships, fee waivers, language support, admissions flexibility, etc.
There will be no fee to join the consortium. Each university-university relationship will have its own individual financial agreement.
The consortium will be led on a rotating basis by two co-chairs: one U.S and one Indonesian institution. The bi-national co-chairs will lead the consortium for one term, which is equal to two calendar years. Before the third year, the consortium members will elect two new co-chairs to lead the following term. In the third year, the current co-chairs will remain as vice co-chairs for one year to ensure a smooth and supported transition.
Proposed Initial Membership
The initial pilot consortium will include six U.S. and six Indonesian institutions. An advance announcement will be posed to USIPP participating institutions, followed by a wider invitation. Members will be chosen on a first come, first served basis on the condition that they agree to the member guidelines and responsibilities.
