American Councils for International Education

Since 1974, American Councils for International Education (ACIE) has been making international education accessible for all. And today, the organization has built a global community of 85 countries and 89,000 alumni through cultural and academic exchanges, research assessments, language immersion programs, and professional development. ACIE’s alumni include everyone from high school students to professionals, national leaders, ministers, members of parliament, ambassadors, and CEOs.

In an effort to improve national security, prosperity, and peace, ACIE’s goal for its members is to prepare them to succeed in our increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world. But ACIE most recently created a whole new set of strategic goals, and brought in Threespot, a digital communications agency, for a website redesign to expand its global impact, strengthen its financial standing, and build a stronger understanding of who they are. Threespot partnered with Inclind, ACIE’s ongoing Drupal development partner to implement the new design and upgrade the website's functionality.

DC-based Threespot provides digital strategy, creative, and development services exclusively for organizations and ideas that align with their progressive values. Known for strong collaborative capabilities, Inclind brings to the table nearly 20 years of experience developing, designing, supporting and maintaining web content management systems. With ACIE's mission to prepare tomorrow's leaders for an ever-changing world and its need for a more modern and sophisticated Drupal site, a collaboration among the three organizations was a no-brainer.

“We’ve worked with Inclind in the past and they’re a trusted partner,” says Liz Ott, Director of Client Engagement with Threespot. “With collaborative projects like this, there’s a real value in leveraging partner agencies for their strengths. Our track record working strategically with progressive nonprofits dovetailed nicely with Inclind’s strengths as Drupal developers, giving ACIE the best of both worlds.”
