APLU is a research, policy, and advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening and advancing the work of public universities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. With a membership of 237 public research universities, land-grant institutions, state university systems, and affiliated organizations, APLU's agenda is built on the three pillars of increasing degree completion and academic success, advancing scientific research, and expanding engagement. Annually, member campuses enroll 4.9 million undergraduates and 1.3 million graduate students, award 1.2 million degrees, employ 1.2 million faculty and staff, and conduct $43.9 billion in university-based research.
The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) was created in 1975 under Title XII of the Foreign Assistance Act to increase the engagement of US Title XII agricultural universities in the fight against global hunger and poverty. Since the creation of the Whole-of-US Government Feed the Future Initiative, the USAID Administrator has increasingly turned to the Presidentially appointed BIFAD to advise on issues related to Feed the Future. In addition to the convening of public meetings to highlight issues of importance to food security, the Administrator has requested that the BIFAD commission studies to analyze various dimensions of agricultural innovation and development in Feed the Future countries.
The AVP will function as part of the Commission on International Initiatives (CII) team, which develops and implements a comprehensive international affairs agenda for senior leadership at public research universities. CII facilitates the seamless integration of international dimensions into the learning, discovery and engagement missions of our APLU institutions. It fosters the development of globally competent students, internationally engaged faculty, and institutions capable of addressing global challenges. CII serves as an advisory body to APLU and is an integral part of APLU’s dialogue on comprehensive internationalization. Through CII’s International Advocacy Coordinating Committee, members develop and lead the advocacy agenda on Capitol Hill on international issues of interest to public universities.
