Global Connections Committee

The Global Connections Committee (GCC) of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans (ICFAD) is dedicated to the enhancement of a worldwide community of leaders who provide learning and training in the arts. The Committee cultivates and nurtures working relationships between international arts institutions that advance common goals with ICFAD.  In addition, for ICFAD members, the Committee engenders genuine understanding and appreciation of the arts in cultures from around the world.
