Visiting Scholars

Every year CSUSB receives international faculty and scholars that collaborate with our campus in various capacities: tenure-track faculty, visiting professors, and short-term scholars. The Center for International Studies and Programs assists academic departments and other CSUSB constituencies in producing the invitation letters as well as the J-1 visa documentation needed to sponsor faculty and scholars' non-immigrant statutes prior to their arrival to campus.

CISP works to attract international faculty and visitors to CSUSB and to provide personal, logistical, and academic assistance to them during their short or extended stays on campus. This support includes help with making contacts in all university departments to obtain letters of invitation and to maximize the contributionsof international scholars' visits.

CISP has personnel knowledgeable about the immigration issues that affect all visiting scholars and their academic hosts. All campus units are encouraged to seek advice from the CISP about visa procedures.
