Faculty & Curricula
The Maricopa Community Colleges is committed to international education and internationalization efforts, and seeks to create an environment where teaching and learning is augmented by international study and work opportunities for faculty.
As part of MCCCD’s strategic mission of Global Engagement, faculty exchange opportunities are considered to be crucial to the successful internationalization efforts of our colleges.
Faculty exchanges provide opportunities for MCCCD faculty and counterparts at international institutions of higher education to enrich the teaching/learning experience. MCCCD faculty gain a better understanding of effective global teaching methodologies and pedagogy that ultimately benefits students. Visiting faculty from abroad help strengthen international learning experiences by bringing global perspectives and knowledge that are directly imparted to MCCCD students.
