Internationalizing Your Departments and Colleges through Faculty and Staff Exchanges.
The Community College Exchange Program (CCEP) is a consortium of community and technical colleges in the United States and abroad designed to establish and facilitate opportunities for administrator, faculty, and staff exchanges. Benefits associated with membership in the CCEP include low cost faculty and staff development, staffing flexibility, the ability to share new and innovative ideas, an alternative to short-term hiring or use of part-time faculty, the ability to create new programs or services in a different environment, opportunities for renewal by working in a different setting, and retraining and cross-training opportunities. Exchanges through the CCEP occur through the following three conditions: (1) person for person, the most common condition which exists when a person from another college or location is required; (2) replacement dollars, a condition in which a college requires a specified amount of dollars to be given to the exchange's college of origin; and (3) occasions where no conditions are associated with the release of an exchange applicant and in which the exchange applicant's college continues to pay their salary and benefits. Appendixes include lists of 1995-96 CCEP and National Faculty Exchange member colleges and a CCEP membership form. (TGI)
