The purpose of the ICC is to review, monitor, and enhance internalization efforts on the Florida Tech campus. The ICC will propose and implement additional activities that would lead to greater internationalization in the academic and co-curricular offerings, and further the cross-cultural competence of students, faculty, and staff.
