Professors Across Borders

The Center for International Studies and Programs administers the Professors Across Borders Program (PAB). The program is funded by CSUSB’s Faculty Professional Development Coordinating Committee through Academic Affairs. The PAB program contributes to campus internationalization by facilitating faculty engagement in international research, conference presentations and publications, grant writing, and curriculum internationalization. Through faculty engagement, PAB also strengthens relationships with partner institutions outside of the U.S. The annual call for program is communicated in March.

PAB is administered by CISP and oversight and selection is through the Executive Committee. Please direct program related inquiries to Genoveva Thomas at CISP.
