Community College Educational Resources Database

The Curriculum Internationalization Resources for Community College Educators website provides a way for U.S. Department of Education-designated Title VI National Resource Centers to share information, curricular materials, and suggestions – many of which were created by community college faculty. The site is hosted by the University of Arizona Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the Indiana University Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center; however, it includes resources posted by many other National Resource Centers.
