In 1998, the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) completed a successful third cycle of Educators Exchange Program (EEP) activities. The goal of EEP is to promote binational cooperation, cultural understanding and economic development through faculty exchange and technical assistance programs. During the last six years of program operation, the initial goals have produced many successful outcomes, including: (1) providing SDCCD and CECATI faculty, staff, and administrators with the opportunity to participate in international exchange and development activities; (2) increasing the quantity and quality of vocational educational curricula in Mexico; (3) expanding existing collaborations with partner organizations and other institutions in the U.S. and Mexico; (4) increasing skills and experience in developing international faculty exchange and technical assistance programs, providing a model for other similar projects; and (5) infusing global perspectives into the curricula of participating educational institutions. Included in this document's discussion are partner organizations, prior exchange efforts, activities and outcomes of the Educators Exchange Program 1998, financial reports, and an evaluation study, including demographics and participant/instructor evaluations.
