CCID/MCK=Twenty Years of Creative Progress in International Education.
Fersh, Seymour
Developed in 1976, the principle mission of the Community Colleges for International Development, Incorporated, is to provide mid-level personnel training and technical assistance in occupational, vocational, and technical education to developing nations throughout the world. In the late 1970s, its first contacts abroad were made with Taiwan and Surinam and its first annual national conference was held. During CCID's first decade, the foundation and development of its organization and procedures evolved steadily. Its purposes were implemented through the growth of its membership and enhanced leadership. Over time, the creative and significant development of international education in community colleges became of increasing interest to more educators and policy-makers. By 1983, CCID's leadership and achievements were increasingly recognized and valued. By 1986, its membership had increased to eleven community colleges. It also developed a new category of institutional relationship called the Affiliate, which is a cooperating institution in CCID that does not participate in its governance. In 1993, CCID established the following new membership classifications: the International Associate, the Partnership, and the Personal Associate membership. Today, there are 23 Member colleges and 55 Affiliates. In 1995, CCID continued its innovative progress with the creation of educational programs and services on-line through a "virtual" campus. Contains 12 references and a list of Member and Affiliate colleges. (HAA)
