CCID's System for
(available for use by CCID Members)
Updated May, 2015
CCID is committed to providing its member colleges with tools that can help institutions
establish a baseline of activity and goals for improvement. A key tool is the Framework for
Comprehensive Internationalization, which has been produced by CCID specifically for
community colleges. The FCI tool is informed by research on comprehensive
internationalization and guided by an intention to provide institutions with a process that is both simple and collaborative.
The FCI tool seeks to establish an institutional profile by providing descriptions of institutional stages of development in broad categories and more specific subcategories. When an institution is finished using the tool it will have a simple profile establishing strengths and opportunities which can be used to easily establish institutional goals.
