Center for Global Initiatives Key Initiatives

The Corporate Culture Exchange
The Corporate Culture Exchange provides a platform for students from community and technical colleges around the world to collaborate virtually to address key workforce challenges provided by Michigan based global companies. See our brochure for more information.

The MCCA Center for Global Initiatives is honored to be selected by Soliya to pilot its Connect program, which is an expert facilitated virtual exchange among student from the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and SE Asia. The two eight-week sessions with MCCA colleges will include Syrian refugees based in Jordan. Soliya is the recipient of an award from the Aspen Institute’s Stevens Initiative which provides funding for this project. Contact Carol Stax Brown if you would like to expand virtual exchange opportunities to your students. Read more about Soliya at

MSU's International Business Center in The Eli Broad Graduate School of Management was designated in 1990 as a National Resource Center by the U.S. Department of Education (i.e., a Center for International Business Education and Research). Through funding from the Center's Title VI B grants, faculty and administrators from Michigan's community colleges will participate in programs in Singapore and Indonesia in February 2017 with the goal of internationalizing business curriculum and developing sustainable institutional partnerships.

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.
