About CCIS

International Education Opportunities Developed by Educators

The College Consortium for International Studies, a partnership of colleges and universities - two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign - encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS was founded over 30 years ago on the values and commitment that all students should have access to and opportunity in education abroad, regardless of background, major, or socio-economic status. 


501(c)(3) Non-Profit

CCIS is a 501(c)(3) education non-profit where members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and capacity building for international educators, faculty, and administrators, which are designed to enhance international and intercultural perspectives within the academic community.    

Contact Us

Recognizing the value of international education experiences in fostering global understanding and peaceful cooperation among nations in an increasingly interdependent and rapidly changing world, CCIS is committed to developing international dimensions as an integral part of collegiate education. CCIS works to build collaborative arrangements among institutions who share this commitment, and facilitate linkages between member institutions and international partners. In all of its programs and activities, CCIS strives for a high level of academic excellence.  

The CCIS Values

Academic Excellence, Affordability, Diversity, Access, Accountability, Service, Safety, Advocacy, Transparency, and Inclusivity   

For more information about CCIS and institutional membership, download the CCIS brochure or contact us directly.
