Community College Administrator Program (CCAP)

https://lsi.fsu.edu/ccap/

The Community College Administrators Program is an ongoing project (2014-2023) implemented by FSU-LSI for the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs. CCAP educates policy makers and administrators of post-secondary vocational-technical institutions in multiple countries on the operations of the U.S. community college model in areas of governance, leadership, workforce development, skills training, curriculum development, instruction, student affairs, program evaluation, career services, instructional technology and accommodation of diversity in order to improve vocational/skills training in participating countries and strengthen these institutions’ capacity to contribute to the economic development needs of participating countries. CCAP accomplishes these goals through an intensive six-week program of study of the U.S. community college model conducted partly in the participating countries and in Florida. To date, FSU-LSI has implemented CCAP programs for cohorts from Indonesia, India, Ukraine, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Egypt, Pakistan, and South Africa.
