Deadline: 18 May 2020
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 2020 Community College Administrator Program (CCAP).
The program promotes American prosperity and expands American influence by advancing U.S. technical and vocational education globally through the exchange of foreign government officials and senior administrators in higher education to the United States to examine the key tenets of U.S. community college administration and to witness innovative approaches to address current global workforce development needs. The program advances U.S. higher education models, promotes American values among foreign participants, and provides professional development for key foreign officials responsible for designing higher education systems that will educate the burgeoning youth bulge. The program advances internationalization efforts at U.S. community colleges and fosters a global network between and among U.S. and foreign administrators in vocational-technical education, building bridges to support U.S. competitiveness.
The Community College Administrator Program will support the development of higher education in one or more countries by expanding the capacity of key educators and administrators to strengthen technical and vocational institutions that serve diverse audiences that may include economically disadvantaged and historically underserved populations. The program should focus on exploring the U.S. community college model and its flexibility to respond to local, regional, and national education needs. The program should also share how community colleges expand access to higher education and work with business and industry in ways that meet local workforce and community needs.

Program Overview and Design
To address these goals, the proposal implementation strategy should include at least one U.S. community college and one U.S. graduate school of education or equivalent graduate-level training program. Proposals should demonstrate depth of experience in conducting and administering complex, multi-faceted international education and cultural exchange programs and in offering graduate-level academic study of community college administration. The implementation strategy should be based on extensive involvement with U.S. colleges, universities, relevant state and local government agencies, and educational associations with expertise in community college leadership training and day-to-day administration in order to provide participants with a broad exposure to institutional missions, practices, and challenges in the community college sector.
