In the Fall of 2013, CCSA put out a call for proposals for a new Host Institution. A group of us at WKU decided to make an offer. CCSA accepted WKU’s offer in January of 2014 and the transition to WKU was completed in August of that year.

CCSA and WKU completed a new agreement for WKU to continue as Host and institution fo record for a five-year term.

WKU Provost Robert Fischer and CCSA Board Chair Michael Hatton signed the agreement that went into effect on September 7, 2023, and will run through the end of 2028. John Sunnygard, Associate Provost for Global Learning and International Affairs, continues as the WKU liaison and CCSA Board member.

As Host Institution, WKU provides office space and other support services for the normal functions of CCSA’s main office on the WKU campus in Bowling Green, Kentucky. As the Institution of Record, WKU issues transcripts for those CCSA students who earn credit through WKU. Each CCSA member institution determines how credit is to be issued for their students – either from the member school or through WKU. All non-consortia students earn credit through WKU. This arrangement provides flexibility for CCSA members.

This new agreement enables CCSA to proceed into the upcoming winter and summer program cycles with well-established procedures that serve our students and faculty.

CCSA is a membership organization and serves our members by providing a means to support their students, faculty and goals for international education.  We are not simply a “program provider.”   The member institutions, guided by the CCSA Board of Trustees, own and operate CCSA.

We look forward to providing exciting global learning courses now and into the future in collaboration with our member institutions, our faculty, our on-site teams, and especially our students.
