CSU IP Resident Director

The Resident Director position provides onsite academic, administrative, and fiscal supervision of an overseas study center, under the direction of the Director of International Programs. A Resident Director of The California State University International Programs (CSU IP) is a full-time, tenured or tenure-track faculty member holding a teaching or administrative appointment on a CSU campus. Resident Directors are appointed by the Director of International Programs with the concurrence of the appointee’s campus administration. Appointments are normally made for a period of one year unless otherwise specified. The faculty member continues to be a campus employee during the year they are abroad and the campus pays the Resident Director. 

Resident Directors must be full-time, tenured or tenure-track faculty members holding a teaching or administrative appointment on a California State University campus, possess a terminal degree, and have appropriate overseas experience.  Faculty participating in the Faculty Early Retirement Program (FERP) are not full-time and therefore are not eligible.


CSU IP offers Resident Director opportunities in the following locations:

FRANCE: University of Aix-Marseille III, Aix-en-Provence and MICEFA, Paris (Resident Director is based in Aix and oversees both programs.) 
ITALY: University of Florence and Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze 
SPAIN: University of Granada and the University of Madrid (Resident Director is based in Madrid and oversees both programs.) 

All Resident Director appointments are full-time twelve month appointments beginning August 1.
