 Center for Global Initiatives
Launch of New Initiative


The vision for the new MCCA Center for Global Initiatives is to:   

Center for Global Iniatives

  • Serve as an entry point to Michigan’s community colleges for international projects, foundation-supported activities, partnerships, and delegations to Michigan.
     
  • Foster long-term relationships and partnerships on behalf of the community colleges to create a network and easier access to real international opportunities that benefit Michigan, the local communities, and institutions alike. 
     
  • Connect regions around the globe to Michigan community colleges for stateside and/or overseas programming (English as a Second Language, technical/skills training).
     
  • Facilitate networking and professional development for interested community colleges on international programming and outreach.
     
  • Raise resources from foundations, private and governmental agencies to support the community colleges in programming and activities.

Prima  Civitas

Creating a World-Class Model


Michigan is building a world-class model for leveraging the community college system to spur international engagement.  To help make the vision for the Center a reality, the MCCA has partnered with the key organization in Michigan working on global issues, the Prima Civitas Foundation. Together, the MCCA and PCF will work to position the new Center as an asset for internalization efforts and for engagement with Michigan’s community colleges.
