The Council on International Educational Exchange, known as CIEE, is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to helping people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.
Founded in 1947, CIEE is the world leader in international exchange, delivering the highest-quality programs that increase global understanding and intercultural knowledge. We provide participants with skills, competencies, and experiences that elevate their ability to contribute positively to our global community.
In 1965 CIEE established an office in Tokyo. As part of the Exchanges division, it promotes a great number of international educational exchange programs. In 1989, CIEE Japan opened an office in the Kyoto International Community House, a primary base of international exchange in the Kansai area. The Fukuoka Office, which serves Southern Japan, opened in 2002. Over the last 50 years, CIEE Japan has developed a wide variety of programs and services for students and teachers at the secondary through university levels and for related constituencies.
Since 1981, CIEE has been working closely with Educational Testing Service (ETS) to administer the TOEFL® test and acts as a regional representative in Japan for various ETS products and services.
CIEE plays an important role as the TOEFL iBT® Resource Center and in promoting ETS products such as TOEFL ITP®, Criterion® and TOEFL iBT® Complete Practice Test.
