Welcome, New International Students

Aug 4, 2014

The Global Education and Services department at Fox Valley Technical College welcomes 12 new international students this month as part of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs Community College Initiative (CCI) program.

The students are visiting FVTC from Bangladesh, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, and South Africa and will be studying business and entrepreneurship. During their visit, the students will be involved in an intensive orientation program which includes English Language Learning and community-based and on-campus service learning opportunities.

The CCI program prepares participants from underserved populations to be global citizens by equipping them with technical proficiency in respective fields of study, employability skills, and leadership expertise to advance their country’s development.
