International Faculty Partnership Seminar, Ghana 2018 ( June 9-16, 2018)

The International Faculty Partnership Seminars sponsored by the California State University through the Academic Council on International Programs (ACIP) are designed to provide international experiences for faculty of diverse disciplines from all CSU campuses.  In order to increase opportunities for faculty, IP is launching a series of seminars in collaboration with partners abroad. Planning is already underway for seminars in Paris, France in 2019 and Tübingen, Germany in 2020.  The seminar themes are broadly based and comparative in nature.
In addition to interacting with colleagues about the conference themes, participants will learn more about CSU International Programs and the experiences of students who participate. By visiting the university, one of the goals of the seminar is to acquaint CSU faculty with the opportunities available to their students.

The theme for this year’s seminar is “Ghana Calls.” In 1957 Ghana declared independence from the United Kingdom and Dr. Kwame Nkrumah became its first Prime Minister. This seminar will examine the evolution of Africa and Ghana in the years since independence. To frame our discussions the seminar will be structured along five tracks. We will be asking CSU participants to choose between a “presenter” role or a “participant” role as a part of the application.  All sessions will include presenters from both the CSU and the University of Ghana in order to grow opportunities for the cross-fertilization of knowledge and create synergies between our institutions. 
The broad theme will be comprised of the following five tracks:
  • Economics, Development, and Governance
  • African Diaspora
  • Teaching Africa
  • African Art, Image, and Literature
  • Africa and the United States 

Through participation in an International Faculty Partnership Seminar, CSU faculty will:
  • Have an opportunity to explore the theme with colleagues in their own and related disciplines; 
  • Learn more about international opportunities available through IP for themselves and for their students; 
  • Establish professional connections and contacts with colleagues from the host institution; 
  • Familiarize themselves with international partner institutions. 

Seminar Costs
As seminar hosts, CSU IP and the University of Ghana, will support the cost of on-site expenses for lodging and meals.
CSU IP will contribute $1000 to the cost of airfare.  Campuses may also support part of international travel for CSU participants.  The Office of International Programs will inform the appropriate campus officials of participants’ selection.
Other incidental expenses and additional travel will be the responsibility of the participant.
Participant Eligibility and Selection
Faculty members from all CSU campuses and all disciplines are encouraged to participate.  Participants must hold a full-time tenured or tenure track appointment at a CSU campus.  Faculty members who will be participating in the Faculty Early Retirement Program on or before July 1, 2018 are not eligible for selection as participants.
Selection of CSU participants will be the responsibility of the Faculty Affairs Committee of the ACIP.  Approximately 20 faculty members will be selected to participate.  The Committee will seek a broad distribution of disciplines and participation from across campuses. 
Those applying in the “participant” pathway are expected to show how participation in the seminar will directly impact their work on campus as a teacher and faculty member.  
Those applying in the “presentation” pathway should submit a presentation abstract (500 words) that is relevant to one of the tracks identified in the seminar announcement.

The application deadline is December 1, 2017. 

The Seminar Selection Committee will meet during February and announcements of the participants will be made on March 1, 2018.
Online Application must include the following information:
  • Name
  • Department
  • Campus
