CCSA is a consortium of American colleges and universities, which offers study abroad programs and internships in English-speaking regions. Currently, CCSA has 23 member institutions in Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
A not-for-profit organization, CCSA is headquartered at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Jerry Barnaby, Executive Director, with the assistance of his staff and guided by policies determined by the CCSA Board of Trustees, annually develops, plans and coordinates study abroad programs in Australia, Belize, England, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Scotland, and other English-speaking areas.
Participants can receive higher education credit (undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education) for successfully completing the CCSA program in which they are enrolled. The classes are taught by faculty from consortium-member schools.
In addition, an internship is available in Dublin, Ireland.
Special non-credit programs, such as choir tours and alumni trips, are planned in English-speaking regions as requested.
