The INU Council meets twice a year. The Spring meeting mainly serves to plan an discuss the summer student program and update on any other ongoing activities. At the Fall meeting the group decides on the annual plan for the next year and assesses activities and reports of currently programs. The Council also meets – if possible – during the EAIE Conferences, which are usually held in September.
Three Academic Planning Committees plan curriculum and upcoming events for the summer programs held at Hiroshima University, Japan: Global Citizenship and Peace, 2) Environmental Sustainability, and 3) Global Health and Nursing. All three planning committees are represented by their chairs in the INU Council.
