Global Partnership Program

The Global Partnership Program (GPP) is designed to pair CSUSM study abroad returnees with new international students. As study abroad returnees have first-hand experiences as to what it is like to be abroad, they are great resources to help new international students get quickly connected to the CSUSM Campus through this program.

Together, the GPP leaders and the GPP International Partners meet over U-Hour for casual conversation based around topics of getting involved on campus, culture, current events, & much more.  

The goal is that the relationships formed continue across time and across borders once everyone returns home.
