Roles and Responsibilities

Chief Academic Officers
Chief academic officers are responsible for internal campus communication about the IAI and for resolving differences between institutions, when necessary. Chief academic officers identify panel members, help orient them to the intent of the IAI and to both state and institutional policies on transfer and articulation, and promote a cooperative attitude on campus. They also coordinate the dissemination of IAI recommendations for comment and the submission of institutional comments on recommendations. [Academic Leadership, 1996 and 1997]

The college/university's IAI Contact Person is responsible for responding to panel requests for information; coordinating the identification of institutional courses that correspond to those described in panel recommendations; annual verification that institutional courses listed on iTransfer.org are accurate and reflect current offerings, and notify respective IBHE/ICCB staff representative of changes needed; and assisting with communication about the IAI on campus. The contact person may also be responsible for selecting and orienting faculty members to represent the institution on panels. [Steering Panel, Revised April 2001]
