CEA Study Abroad has successfully completed The Forum on Education Abroad’s Quality Improvement Program (QUIP) process and received QUIP recognition for all of our programs. As the only objective independent review system in education abroad, obtaining QUIP recognition indicates that CEA conforms to The Forum’s benchmarks for quality programs and meets the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.
After evaluating CEA’s QUIP application, The Forum’s review panel noted that: “CEA has demonstrated that it is in substantial conformity with The Forum’s Standards of Good Practice, maintains a commitment and dedication both to offering high quality programs in education abroad at a level of excellence acceptable to the larger academic community, and to continuous assessment and improvement.”
CEA’s QUIP recognition highlights our commitment to enhancing our academic integrity, improving local operations and international programming, continual compliance, and ongoing evaluation of policies and procedures.
CEA is a National Charter Member of The Forum on Education Abroad, the leading professional organization for U.S.-based education abroad. The Forum is recognized by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission as a Standards Development Organization for the field of education abroad. As a founding member, CEA is committed to the Standards of Good Practice, The Forum Compass on ethical decision making in education abroad, and The Forum-AACRAO Guidelines for School of Record Relationships. Through both internal and external assessment processes, and in conjunction with our School of Record—the University of New Haven—CEA continually works to assure our study abroad programs align with the nine Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.
