Congrats, to our graduates from South Africa and others in NWCCI

Check out this video made by our graduates from South Africa. These students studied Project Management, Accounting, Information Technology and other career-training fields as part of the U.S. Department of State sponsored Northwest Community College Initiative (NWCCI).

Edmonds Community College administers NWCCI to provide professional training and degrees to students from South Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Near East. Edmonds CC, as the lead college, has partnered with Whatcom Community College and Pierce College to provide the educational programs stipulated by the grant.

This was Edmonds Community College’s third year of hosting NWCCI which, to date, has hosted 90 students. During the 2011-12 academic year, 40 students from Brazil, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Ghana, Kenya, Pakistan, Panama, South Africa, and Turkey studied in Washington state through this partnership.
