INSTITUTE FOR REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES GOVERNANCE:
An Executive Committee provides shared governance oversight of IRIS.
2022-2023 ACADEMIC YEAR MEETINGS:
IRIS convenes a monthly General Meeting on the first Wednesday of each month the UW-Madison is in session. The General Meeting is held from 9:00-9:45am. The Executive Committee of IRIS meets periodically during the academic year following the General Meetings from 9:45 am to 10:30 am. For the 2022-2023 academic year meetings will be held via Zoom or in 206 Ingraham Hall on the following days:
- September 28, 2022 (we will have both General and Executive Committee meetings this day)
- November 2, 2022
- December 7, 2022
- February 1, 2023
- March 1, 2023
- April 5, 2023
- May 3, 2023
We have not yet designated which of the above meeting dates will include an executive committee meeting beyond the first.
On March 3, 2021 the then Governing Council of IRIS voted unanimously to approve the IRIS by-laws which restructured the governance of IRIS, establishing the IRIS Executive Committee as the shared governance body of the Institute.
Prior to March 3, 2021, IRIS operated under the by-laws of the International Institute (predecessor of IRIS, approved 2/13/2013) and following the guidance offered in the proposal for the creation of IRIS (4/12/2015; effective 7/1/2015).
