The CCI Program in Higher Education News

The Community College Initiative (CCI) Program has been featured in U.S. News and World Report in an article about how government funded programs strengthen international exchange at community colleges.

U.S. News education staff writer Kelly Mae Ross writes:

“Students don’t need to attend a four-year college to have an international education experience.

The U.S. government and some community colleges are working to provide more students at two-year institutions with exposure to global cultures and ideas. One effort aims to send more community college students abroad, while another brings international students to U.S. community colleges, creating more diverse campuses.”

The article provides information about the CCI Program including annual data, the academic fields of study offered, and insight into student experience. Most significantly, the article highlights the impact the CCI Program makes on a domestic and international scale.
