International Education and Community Colleges - A Brief List of Resources

The other day a colleague contacted me (via Twitter) looking for information on study abroad and community colleges.  Fortunately, I compile lists (many, many lists) and had one going on this topic so I was able to do more of less of a copy and paste job in a message (via LinkedIn) back to her.  I thought I would share that list here on IHEC Blog.  To be sure, my list is very U.S-centric so, in addition to learning about more resources here in the U.S., I am particularly interested in learning about resources outside of the U.S.  If you know of any resources that should be added to this brief list please leave detailed information below as a comment.

  1. Thanks for sharing this list of resource. Leaving a very culturally diverse community college with over 90 first languages spoken and going to a campus with essentially a non-existence international emphasis, has been quite the cultural shock. Though I am not directly involved in international education at my current campus, I would love to share these resources with those who are and hopefully assist in creating an environment that acknowledges and welcomes international diversity.
