Establishing International Partnerships

Cal State Fullerton is committed to promoting partnerships with international universities, colleges, governmental agencies and special organizations, to support the university’s mission as a “regional university with a global outlook.” Establishing meaningful partnerships must be mutually beneficial to both institutions and can be the conduit for the promotion of cultural appreciation and the increase in academic excellence.

Following CSUF procedures is crucial to ensuring the highest quality of the program as well as protecting the integrity of the University.


Options for Developing Partnerships

There are currently three options for establishing partnerships. Details are below as well as links to PDFs that include more information, including approval procedures and timelines on establishing those partnerships.

Our Study Abroad Director Jack Hobson is happy to help you throughout any point of this process:

Additional Information

CSUF first signed an international partnership with Fudan University in China in 1984 and has since signed over 150 formal partnerships globally. From each partnership the University has found three factors essential to success, these are:

  1. Strong advocacy by faculty or individual willing to serve as a “steward” of the partnership
  2. Focused theme for the partnerships (i.e. leaders in international business, coastal ecological research)
  3. Commitment of support for your program development, delivery and marketing by both institutions
