International Research Symposium

Each year, the Committee for International Research holds a research symposium to showcase the international/global research and creative activities of CSUSM faculty.

We aim to:

  • Bring together people from different disciplines to share their work and explore collaboration possibilities.
  • Foster discussion through informal mini-presentations of faculty work.
  • Learn about the exciting and innovative international research of our faculty.
  • Educate CSUSM and our surrounding community about our amazing work!
