International Virtual Exchange

Mission and Vision

NECC faculty’s vision of internationalizing curriculum has found a new home! International Virtual Exchange (IVE) has allowed students and faculty to bring the world directly into the classroom. While conserving the integrity of their curriculum, faculty are able to implement high impact practices directly in their classrooms. Students experience 21st century workplace dynamics while collaborating with peers across the world in an interdisciplinary curriculum.

Interested to join the IVE list of faculty offering internationalization in their courses?

Fill out our Application of Intent and take the next step of bringing an experiential project into your curriculum.

A message to future IVE faculty and a thank you to Melba Acevedo!
