BalancED, in cooperation with The International Center for Intercultural Communication (ICIC), provides English Proficiency Courses certified by Indiana University, USA. The Indiana Center for Intercultural Communication (ICIC) was established by the IU Board of Trustees in 1998 as a research and service unit housed in the Department of English in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI.

For more than 20 years, ICIC staff and resident scholars have produced cutting-edge empirical research in applied linguistics at the practical intersection of intercultural communication. This research has led to collaborative efforts with a diverse group of international scholars, teachers, clinicians, local community partners, and other institutions dedicated to improving written and oral communication between people of different cultural backgrounds and societies.
