Mission Statement

CIEE's mission is to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.

We approach our tasks aware of the great responsibility we are given to help mold tomorrow?s citizens in a complex and fast-changing world.

We are committed to quality and excellence. We have developed stringent quality indicators for all of our activities, and the tracking mechanisms to insure that we continue to improve our levels of service to our customers. We rely on the advice of academic leaders to assure the quality of our educational programs.

We are committed to being a truly global organization. We continue to open new offices, establish new programs, and form new partnerships on every continent. We have initiated exchange activities between and among many of the newer countries we now serve and expect this pace to quicken in the coming years.

We are committed to utilizing the best technology available to communicate with and educate the people who participate in our programs and utilize our services. Internet and intranet systems will be an increasingly important part of our operational and administrative services.

We are committed to service excellence which means we need to employ and empower well trained, highly professional and personally responsive staff. We provide development, training and growth opportunities for our staff, and we support staff exchanges to make our employees as global and international as our programs and services themselves. We are a people oriented organization, internally and externally.

We move into the next century, and into our next fifty years, with lofty, but achievable, goals. We are proud of our past and excited about out future?and our ability to contribute to the world in which we live. CIEE moves forward with the same spirit of commitment that has already made us a worldwide leader in international education and exchange.


Welcome a foreign student into your home. Open your hearts to a special young person and allow them to experience the American way of life inside a warm and loving family environment. CIEE provides an opportunity to gain new insights and renewed appreciation for different cultures, as well as an unforgettable adventure for you, your family and your exchange student. Discover the difference you could make by becoming a Host Family. Families with or without children, as well as responsible single adults, can become volunteer host families. All that is required from a host parent is the care and attention you would show your own child and to encourage the student to become an
active member of the family
