Compensation

Full-time Resident Directors receive from their home campus their current salaries on a 12-month, or academic year, scale plus approximately 10% for overseas location. The 10% differential is designed partially to compensate the Resident Director for those special expenses associated with overseas service. Above all, a Resident Director makes a difference in students' lives.

CSU INTERNATIONAL FACULTY PARTNERSHIP SEMINARS

Purpose of the Seminar

The International Faculty Partnership Seminars, sponsored by The California State University Academic Council on International Programs (ACIP), are designed to provide international experiences for the faculty in diverse disciplines from all of the CSU campuses. The mission of the CSU International Programs (IP) is to foster international opportunities not only for students, but also for faculty. In order to increase opportunities for faculty beyond the CSU Resident Director positions, the IP has launched a series of seminars that began in 2000. The seminar themes are broadly based and comparative in nature.

Through participation in an international seminar, faculty will:

•  establish professional connections and contacts with foreign colleagues;

•  have an opportunity to explore issues of international concern with colleagues in their own and in related disciplines;

•  be able to familiarize themselves with foreign education and CSU partner institutions;

•  discover and investigate international opportunities through the IP for themselves and for their students.
