 The Consortium has begun with a focus on China, in particular on the development of partnerships between community colleges in Ohio and Michigan, and higher vocational colleges in Southeast China.  In the US, the Consortium has approached both the Ohio Association of Community Colleges and the Michigan Community College Association as potential partners; and in China, the China Education Association for International Exchange and the Confucius Institute Headquarters have agreed to partner with the Consortium.
