Return to Members of CIC Profiles of CIC International Members

​CIC’s twenty-one (21) International Members are ideal partners to explore opportunities for student and faculty exchanges and other types of cooperation to advance—with minimal bureaucratic obstacles—aspects of internationalizing a campus. While located across the globe in varied regional cultural, political, and economic settings, these institutions have in common several characteristics that ease the process of building inter-institutional relationships and making arrangements. The CIC International Members are all:

  • Institutions located outside the United States that offer a U.S.-type post-secondary academic program with instruction in English, and with a cross-cultural and international focus;
  • Chartered or incorporated as an independent, non-profit entity either in the United States or in the country in which the institution is located;
  • Accredited as an independent institution by one of the regional associations in the United States;
  • Governed by a board of directors, trustees, or governors, in which complete authority for the operation of the program is legally vested; and
  • Equipped with instructional facilities, resources, faculty, and administrations appropriate to the goals and purposes of offering an American-style educational experience.

The map below indicates the locations of all CIC International Members. The map pins, as well as the list links, provide brief profiles of these colleges and universities. The profiles describe the distinguishing aspects and academic offerings of each institution, summarize if applicable existing exchanges with American colleges and universities, and list the contact information of the president and the campus official entrusted with developing cooperation with CIC’s Institutional Member colleges and universities.
