Dear Friends of CIP,

I am excited to share with you our 2016 Annual Review. Our organization creates high
quality professional training programs for International Professionals in Residence (IPRs).
During Fiscal Year 2016 (from 10/1/15 and will end on 9/30/16), we hosted 55 IPRs from 8
countries. We hosted a total of 6 delegations, including a Chinese New Media delegation
sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Beijing; our third Chinese Social Work delegation; a
Chinese Youth STEM Camp in partnership with COSI; a Chinese Breast Cancer Survivor
program; a Rule of Law program represented by Russia, Rwanda, and the Democratic
Republic of the Congo (a first for CIP); and a Nepali Small Business Development program
made possible through connections to Anil Pandey, a former CORE participant.
CIPs CORE IPRs benefit the Central Ohio community by training at local organizations where they provide
their professional services full-time. They improve local businesses, organizations, and agencies by providing
unique insights into how similar organizations operate in their home countries. Our members and the local
community gain cultural immersion through our monthly cultural events, hosting, and other interactions with
the IPRs.
To demonstrate the reach and impact of CIP, we have created an evaluation metric called Intercultural Credit
Units (ICUs). This metric measures the number of intercultural interactions provided through CIPs training
programs by assigning one credit unit to each IPR, each local organization, and each event. During fiscal year
2016, CIP generated 14,344 ICUs.
Global communication is increasingly important as we attempt to address our worlds problems together. With
a strong social service sector, a number of the worlds most successful corporations, and hundreds of
international shops and restaurants, Columbus is an excellent venue to Promote International Understanding
through Intercultural Exchange.
