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!

CCID Spotlight!

April 25, 2016



The Snow College Center for Global Engagement recently sent a group of 11 students and teachers to an exchange with SENA (Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje) in Santa Fe de Antioquia and Medellin, Colombia as part of a 100K Strong in the Americas grant.  The grant was focused on bilingualism, agribusiness, woodworking, and global awareness. The Snow students were enrolled in a service learning class titled Global Inquiry.  Students participated in many of the SENA programs such as: agribusiness, rural tourism, culinary arts, furniture design, wood-working construction, and violin making.  Some highlights were learning to cook traditional Colombian food, cazuela, in SENA’s mobile food lab and kitchen, and discovering the process of growing and harvesting cacao. 

“It’s amazing that I have eaten chocolate most of my life, but never seen where it comes from,” said Chris Fales, a Snow College entrepreneurship student.  The group also learned about the 36 varieties of mangos grown in the region and how the trees are maintained for maximum production.  For one day the students participated in the sugar cane refining process, boiling the cane juice into granulated panela.
The project was part of an effort for more global engagement and exchange on the community college level.  SENA and Snow College have much in common and both institutions are looking to help educate the global citizens of the future.  Snow College will host 11 students and teachers from SENA in June for two weeks. They will take classes in English and participate in agribusiness, woodworking, and cultural activities.  The project has been a great success so far, and the plan is to continue the partnership with future exchanges.
