National CIBER Program

The national CIBER program, founded under the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 and administered through the U.S. Department of Education, links U.S. businesses with the expertise of U.S. universities in areas of international education, language training, and research. Thirty-three universities are designated as CIBERs to serve as regional and national resources for businesses, students, educators, and academics. Together, the CIBERs form a powerful network focused on meeting the personnel and information needs of American businesses. The CIBER network serves to enhance U.S. competitiveness and provide programs and services that help U.S. businesses succeed in global markets.
