The Office of Global Educational Programs of the U. S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) announces an open competition to administer the FY 2016 Community College Administrator Program (CCAP).
Accredited U. S. colleges and universities and other U. S.
public or private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to design, administer and implement one six-week intensive exchange program in the United States.
The program is for foreign administrators from post-secondary vocational and technical institutions or their equivalents in selected countries.
Exchange participants for the six-week program could also include government officials or others with significant responsibilities related to post-secondary technical and vocational education.
The program will provide participants with skills focused on community college administration including leadership, governance, finance, student affairs and student services, program assessment, workforce development, private sector partnerships, community engagement, technology, and distance learning.
The successful applicant will provide flexible programming and an ability to tailor the program to selected countries' education priorities for technical and vocational education.
The successful applicant should outline specific plans to incorporate each selected country's technical and vocational priorities into each program offering so it can provide impact assessments for each country/region from which participants are selected.
