CCID is a global network of community, technical, and vocational institutions dedicated to creating globally engaged learning environments.

Members engage within the network to improve practices, participate in learning communities, and collaborate to advance global opportunities at the college level. 

CCID's Framework for Comprehensive Internationalization (FCI 1.5) is here!

A task force of CCID members and partners were deeply involved in the revisions. Some highlights include:

  • Clarified & simplified language for consistency

  • Reduced number of indicators

  • Updated study abroad indicators to reflect changing terminology in the field

  • Added a "Don't Know" response option

CCID also provides services that include a Framework-based online data collection tool and report that highlight the areas of consensus from staff, faculty, and leaders at your institution. Additionally we can build an onsite workshop to further engage a broad representation of all constituencies in the internationalization process; this workshop also provides an opportunity to vet and validate results from the online report. If you are interested in either of these, or just have general questions, please Contact Us today!



Contact Us if your institution would like a copy of FCI 1.5.

CCID Spotlight!

June 20, 2016

Central New Mexico Community College launched its Global Education initiative in December 2015 to help increase the global competence of CNM students and empower them with the skills to compete, connect and collaborate on a global scale. Soon after launching Global Education, the college was named a grant recipient for President Obama’s 100,000 Strong in the Americas Initiative – the White House’s “signature education initiative in the Western Hemisphere designed to foster region-wide prosperity through greater international exchange of students.”

Through the grant, CNM is partnering with Colombia’s Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA), or its National Training Service, which is Colombia’s largest public institution that provides free vocational and technical training to nine million Colombians annually. Exchange students will complete a four-course Cisco Network Associate program at their home institutions beginning in August. Then CNM students will travel to Medellin, Colombia, for a two-week exchange in October. SENA students will travel to Albuquerque in November.

In May, CNM participated in the U.S. Commercial Service Central America education trade mission to Panama, Honduras and Guatemala. CNM met with education partners, bilingual high schools and participated in education fairs that were attended by over 8,000 potential international students.

Providing study abroad experiences is widely recognized by business and industry leaders as providing valuable skills and personal qualities in potential employees. Recently, six students from CNM’s Culinary Arts program ventured to Oaxaca, Mexico to experience and learn about one of Mexico’s most vibrant and appetizing street food scenes.
