Dear Ms. Kuntz and Dr. Canales,

I am contacting you in your capacity as co-chairs of the Illinois Abroad Council Steering Committee. The Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) Working Group (iWG) recently approved recommendation Education008 from the Education iCAP Team to incorporate sustainability learning and activities into study abroad programs campus-wide. The team recommends the Illinois Abroad Council Steering Committee work with the Environmental Sustainability and Study Abroad Working Group, and representatives from study abroad programs in each college, to develop policies and procedures for meeting this goal. Additional details are provided in the attached recommendation.

The Formal iCAP Procedures include a section on campus unit responsibilities upon receipt of a recommendation, and we respectfully request your response to this recommendation by May 5, if possible. If you have any questions regarding this recommendation, please let us know.
