This publication examines the responses given by 233 community colleges to a 2001 institutional survey conducted by ACE and expands on the findings presented in the 2003 ACE report titled Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses. It reports a low level of overall internationalization for community colleges, with 61 percent scoring "low" or two on a five-point scale. It also provides scores for each dimension of the internationalization index, compares the top two quartiles of community colleges ("highly active") with the bottom three, and outlines activities that are more exclusive to highly active colleges.
