An early CIEL initiative was executing a Memorandum of Agreement that provided student and faculty exchange opportunities across all CIEL campuses. The agreement includes study abroad programs, giving student the opportunity to take courses that are not offered at their home institutions.

The exchanges also offer students the opportunity to move for a time from a private to a public college or vice verse, experiencing vastly different campus cultures and different political and socio-economic milieus, living in a different geographical region, taking advantage of curricular opportunities and faculty expertise not present on the home campus, developing a rich comparative perspective.

Faculty exchanges offer opportunities to learn first hand about the teaching practices, programs, and institutional structures of other campuses and to engage in collaboration on research interests.
