If you were like me a few weeks ago you have no idea who Meridian International Center is and what they do for students, faculty and colleges or for that matter the world. Listen to Frank Justice, VP, Center for Diplomatic Engagement @ Meridian to learn about some of the projects Meridian is working on that may be of interest to your students, your faculty and your administrators. Meridian offers opportunities for students to learn more about job opportunities in government services through online learning, internships and more. They offer exchanges for a variety of people. I think the project they are going to start in summer 2023 is most interesting to me so be sure and listen to last part of the podcast. Frank would be happy to talk to you if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org

Geoff Bradshaw, Dean of International Education at Madison Area Technical College, discusses CCID's Framework for Comprehensive Internationalization (FCI).

It gives a simple profile establishing the strengths and opportunities which can be used to measure and establish institutional goals.
