Who can Become a Member of IFSA?

Membership of the IFSA is open to any member of our CSUSM community who shares and supports our mission. As an association, our mission is to “support, celebrate, and advocate for international faculty and staff at CSUSM and promote global awareness and global competence among members of our university community”. 

As such, membership is not exclusive to those who identify as “international faculty and staff” but is extended to those who support our cause and mission whom we call “friends.” Please, consider becoming a member of IFSA. We receive and process membership applications from faculty, staff, and friends all year round.
