INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION CORPORATION
At International Education Corporation (IEC), we understand the transformative power of education and its ability to nurture opportunities, change lives, and help students achieve their dreams. As an employee-owned organization, IEC and our subsidiaries are dedicated to the success of our students, our employees, and the communities we serve. We strive to drive personal and community transformation by empowering students to make a positive and enduring life change. We do this by preparing our students with the knowledge and skills they need — both personal and professional — to succeed in today’s most promising and in-demand career fields.
For 40 years, we have remained committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve by providing access to quality, short-term vocational and career training programs in high-demand verticals like healthcare, business, technology, skilled trades, and criminal justice. IEC is the parent company of subsidiaries that do business as United Education Institute (UEI), UEI College, Florida Career College (FCC), and U.S. Colleges, with locations in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Georgia, Texas, and Washington.
IEC is also the parent company of Sage Truck Driving Schools, which provides truck driver and commercial driver's license (CDL) training in the states of Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Montana, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, and Wyoming.
OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The year 2020 brought an unprecedented crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic, and just like institutions across the nation, IEC and our subsidiaries were forced to respond quickly to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all students and employees. At the onset of the pandemic, IEC closed all campuses for in-person instruction while leaders evaluated how to navigate the challenges of this new reality.
OUR COMMITMENT TO EQUALITY
At IEC, we believe that positive social change will come about only when the barriers of gender identity, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and religious beliefs are overcome. We don’t just embrace diversity at IEC – we crave it. We will champion diversity, inclusion and equality across our network of schools, and we will inspire a new generation of graduates to be active participants in these endeavors in their local communities. We stand with the African-American community in the push for social justice. In 2020, IEC created the Be the Change Scholarship program in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. With this scholarship, we seek to honor an individual who has the passion, drive, and commitment to be an agent of change for social justice. The Be the Change Scholarship is now offered annually at Florida Career College, United Education Institute, and UEI College.
