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 "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.
