The Connection Mission Statement

The Connection for International Credential Evaluation Professionals brings together individuals from around the world to collaborate, share information, and access resources regarding admissions decisions, the determination of educational credential equivalencies, the articulation of professional standards, and the promotion of best practices in the field of international comparative education.


Why we started The Connection

The Connection for International Credential Evaluation Professionals (The Connection) is an online community for the professional international educational credential evaluator. In the last few years we have been hearing from professionals around the world about the need for a new way of sharing information and supporting the field of foreign educational credential evaluation. As part of our commitment to public service, Educational Credential Evaluators is proud to be a part of such an initiative.


Everyone has something to contribute

While The Connection is hosted and maintained by ECE, it is powered by its community of users, fueled by the open exchange of information among colleagues. Users are urged to answer as well as ask questions, participate in surveys, contribute news, presentations, share resources, and offer their perspective on various credential evaluation issues.

The Connection provides a discussion forum, events calendar, news updates, resources, and other tools and information to help credential evaluators do their jobs. As the user community grows, so will the features and functions of The Connection. With the input of the user community, we will continue add the tools most useful to you.
