Interstate Passport uses the expertise of many different groups from each member institution. Interstate Passport is faculty-driven for Learning Outcomes but work closely with Academic Advisors, Registrars and Institutional Researchers, Campus Marketing and Communications, and Military and Veterans Affairs.

Please see the chart below on the Interstate Passport Network and how the State and Institutional Organizations work together.
We provide implementation instructions and resources for groups charged with instituting, tracking, and promoting Interstate Passport® on campus.
The institution Liaison (IL) leads their institution’s Interstate Passport implementation team by promoting an understanding of the obligations for participating in the Interstate Passport Network. This entails coordinating internal communication and operations in support of Interstate Passport for institutional faculty and staff with respect to established policies and procedures for Passport membership.
Academic Advisors hold the key to communicating information about Interstate Passport consistently and accurately. As a student’s initial contact in their academic career, it is critical for academic advisors to know how Interstate Passport works and how earning a Passport benefits students.
Faculty members from Network member institutions are a driving force behind developing Interstate Passport by providing content expertise based on their respective discipline’s knowledge and skill areas. Faculty are pivotal to the quality control embedded in Passport Learning Outcomes so must be well equipped to identify the learning experiences that make up their institution’s Passport Block.
Marketing and Communications staff are essential to promoting and communicating accurate information about the Interstate Passport to the campus community, prospective students, and parents. They are charged with advancing knowledge about Interstate Passport to students, prospective students, and incoming transfers through the institution’s website and catalogs.
Registrars and Institutional Researchers are significant players in designing and implementing Interstate Passport’s student related data collection and tracking process and are charged with developing and enabling reporting requirements through utilizing the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) as the central data repository for the program.
