(c) Convenes and coordinates APRU's thematic working groups in order to develop implementation plans for activities under the three thematic priorities of the APRU Strategic Framework;

(d) Receives and develops an overall plan from working groups' reports and recommendations on evaluating existing activities of APRU and proposals for new initiatives;

Members of the IPAC hold a renewable two-year term and are by appointment.

APRU's programs are organised under three thematic priorities within the Strategic Framework. Each thematic priority has a Working Group which proposes programs and initiatives that advances the theme and identifies concrete support from member universities for these activities. They prioritise activites and programs as well as propose delivery models, timelines, resource requirements, communication and action plans for launching new programs under the respective themes. The Working Groups provide brief reports to the IPAC including recommendations and plans for new activites including timelines, resource requirements, capacity building and risk assessment.
