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.

Enhancing Lecturers' Intercultural Competences

Close to 25% of the students at Lillebaelt Academy - University of Applied Sciences, Denmark are international students. To ensure that our students are met with respect and understanding it is crucial that our lecturers become aware of their own cultural values, beliefs and perceptions. Therefore, we focus on developing our lecturers’ intercultural awareness and understanding, which is done through e.g. participation in teaching and training activities at one of our partner institutions.
Our Director of International Affairs and three lecturers from our Marketing, Sales and Business Development faculty participated in an intense 2-day training session at our bilateral partner Fontys University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands. Local and international lecturers participated in the training session with the topic intercultural awareness with specific focus on what happens in the multicultural classroom.

“By having our lecturers participate in these kinds of training sessions they can develop their intercultural competences, which will improve their reach in the classroom. We are an international institution and our lecturers have a responsibility to make sure that the students’ various competences are utilized in the best possible way”. -Jacob Mentz, Director of International Affairs.
