Applications invited for CSU International Faculty Partnership Seminar

Tuesday, November 06, 2018

The International Faculty Partnership Seminars, sponsored by the California State University through the Academic Council on International Programs (ACIP), are designed to provide international experiences for faculty of diverse disciplines from all CSU campuses.

The mission of the CSU International Programs (CSU IP), a systemwide unit operating from within the CSU Chancellor’s Office in Long Beach, is to develop intercultural communication skills and international understanding among CSU students and faculty. In order to increase opportunities for faculty, CSU IP has launched a series of seminars in collaboration with partners abroad, including a seminar at the University of Ghana in Accra, Ghana in Summer 2018, and a seminar in Paris to be held in Summer 2019. Also, planning is already underway for a seminar in Tübingen, Germany in 2020. Seminar themes are broadly based and comparative in nature.

Paris, France - Summer 2019 (June 16-22, 2019)

In an increasingly polarized global community, we look toward dialogues of interconnectedness that allow us to examine issues and explore possible solutions. France and California share similar challenges of migration, managing diversity, climate change, sustainable energy, cultural identities, and an evolving marketplace.
This conference will focus on interdisciplinary dialogues that address the above issues. To frame our discussions, the seminar will be structured along six tracks encompassing a wide range of disciplines. All sessions will include presenters from both California State Universities and MICEFA Member Universities (Paris and its region).

How to apply:
