International Visiting Faculty and Fellows Program


Global Education Institute at Cal Poly Pomona welcomes international university faculty, staff and other working professionals from all over the world to join our International Visiting Faculty and Fellows Program. The purpose of the program is to provide foreign nationals with opportunities to participate in educational and cultural programs in the United States and return home to share their experiences. The program participants enter the United States on a J visa. The participants will have the opportunity to experience an authentic American university life and engage in academic research and cultural exchange with Cal Poly Pomona faculty, staff and students so as to enhance their personal and professional growth.
