Manual for Building an International Education Program in the Community College.
Campion, William J.; Bostic, Don
Designed as a resource guide for establishing an international education program at a community college, this handbook provides descriptions of procedures and sample forms utilized in the establishment of an Office of International Education (OIE) at Central Florida Community College (CFCC). The first section, describes the role of the OIE in achieving the college's strategic goals in terms of student recruitment, faculty recruitment and exchange, and curriculum development. This section also includes a sample student and faculty exchange agreement, a class syllabus, and materials from an exchange in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The next sections provide correspondence illustrating institutional commitment, an outline of steps to establish an OIE, and sample application and admissions materials for the CFCC program. Next, information is provided on English as a Second Language (ESL) courses, including descriptions, grading policies, and sample brochures used to publicize the courses and other exchange programs at CFCC. The following sections describe campus and community links supporting the program; review sources of funding, including state scholarship programs, trust funds for students from specific countries, and tuition waivers; and provide a mailing list of Agency for International Development (AID) contractors, including suggestions on effective grantsmanship. The final sections provide a sample bid from an AID sub-contractor and describe the grant application process. A bibliography of ERIC documents on international education and other ERIC materials are appended. (MAB)
