Welcome to Community Colleges
for International Development!

CCID has been helping our members internationalize for over 40 years.  Our mission is to help our members improve practices, participate in learning communities, and collaborate to advance global opportunities at the college level.

Membership is open to any community, technical, or vocational college holding regional, national, or state accreditation; that primarily offer short term certificates and associate degree programs; or similar academic credentials.

CCID's Annual Conference is the must attend event of the year for community college administrators, staff, and faculty who work in the field of international education. The conference offers unparalleled professional development and networking opportunities catered to the needs of community colleges. Our presenters, vendors, and outreach partners at the conference understand the unique needs of community colleges and are dedicated to helping you with efforts to internationalize your college.
