  • Visiting Scholars Program

    Last year’s funds helped support visits to CSUS by twenty one scholars, both national and international, participating in a wide array of events during both the fall and spring semesters.

    Since the beginning of the year, the Visiting Scholars Subcommittee of the Faculty Senate, with the administrative assistance of the Center for Teaching and Learning, review applications for funding. Members of the committee have consistently been impressed with the outstanding credentials of the great majority of visiting scholar applicants. CSUS sponsoring faculty deserve thanks for submitting applications and orchestrating visits, thereby enriching the intellectual and creative vibrancy of our campus.
