A nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, CIEE is the USA’s oldest and largest nonprofit study abroad and intercultural exchange organization. Since 1947, CIEE has helped thousands of people gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering the most comprehensive, relevant, and valuable exchange programs available.
We began nearly 70 years ago with a mission: to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.
It’s an undertaking we’ve been proud to pursue for seven decades.
Today, we serve more than 340 U.S. colleges and universities, 1,000 U.S. high schools, and 35,000-plus international exchange students each year.
We change lives; our alumni change the world.
