Growing with the CLICK System
The CLICK system works best in a collaborative ecosystem of institutional partners. Let us help you grow your institutional network as you grow your CLICK program along with your campus’ reputation and ability to attract great students and faculty. Starting with trust-building among faculty in CLICK training can lead to innovative, bottom up ideas as well as cement program-level initiatives such as joint degrees. With a burst of needs assessment and goal setting with our Founder, you can integrate the CLICK roadmap into your campus’ larger strategy framework and curricular goals through virtual exchange.
Institutional Partnerships: Needs Assessment and Internationalization Strategy

You have a global agenda but it needs to be more focused and address priorities of your campus. Schedule a call with our founder, Dr. Nancy Ruther.
