Program Description

The Community College Administrator Program (CCAP) with Egypt is a five-week program of study for Egyptian officials with higher education planning responsibilities and administrators from post-secondary vocational and technical institutions in Egypt. Conducted by the Florida State University and Santa Fe College, the exchange consists of a one-week Executive Dialogue, a four-week Community College Seminar, and additional follow-on programming in Egypt approximately 6-12 months after the completion of the program in Florida.

Program Objectives

  • Explore aspects in the U.S. higher education system and provide a more comprehensive understanding of the U.S. community college administration.
  • Provide direct exposure to the day-to-day administrative responsibilities and challenges of a U.S. community college, and investigate specific community college academic and vocational programs relevant to the needs of Egypt and/or participants’ home institutions.
  • Provide an opportunity for CCAP participants from Egypt to meet with legislative leaders and senior policymakers of the Florida Community College System to provide a comprehensive understanding of the development, organization and administration of a U.S. community college system integrally linked to secondary education, higher education and the workforce training needs of business and industry.
  • Articulate the unique and important opportunities created through merging academic, business and management skills through the community college system.
  • Encourage on-going collaboration between Egyptian and U.S. counterparts involved in community college administration.

Program Format
