What your colleagues are saying about the Fall 2005 AACC International Recruitment Trip:

Today, it is imperative that we prepare our students with a global perspective.  Because so many of our community college students juggle work, family obligations and school, it is more difficult for them to engage in study abroad and other travel opportunities outside of the U.S.  Bringing international students to our campuses becomes a paramount strategy for providing a true quality education for all of our stakeholders. I found this AACC recruitment trip to be most productive and comprehensive.  We were afforded extensive contact with prospective students, in-country educators, U.S. Embassy officials, and others willing to promote international education, and especially that provided by community colleges.
--- Fran Cubberley, Delaware County Community College

In my 13 years of international recruiting experience, I had never worked with such dedicated organizers. In additional, the group of recruiters was the most congenial and fun I have ever traveled with.
--- Monica Mingucci, Metropolitan Community Colleges

The educational fairs in each country were well attended and the interest among both students and parents was great.  My interpreters at each fair did an excellent job in helping to explain the community college concept and also Aims Community College.
--- Alan Hendrickson, AIMS Community College

The opportunity to meet other international student recruiters/advisors is wonderful.
--- Scott Naus, Community College of Southern Nevada

I was impressed with AACC organization and professionalism.  AACC  made the recruitment trip very successful.  
--- Henry Alvarez, Los Angeles City College
