J Exchange Visiting Scholars
California State University, Chico is proud to have hosted many visiting international scholars from around the world. These scholars enrich the campus in many ways including teaching courses, collaborating with Chico colleagues on research projects, and performing in a wide range of arts fields. In doing so, they engage in the activities of the campus community, sharing their international and cultural experiences and perspectives, and providing rich learning opportunities for students, staff, faculty, and community members.
Visiting Scholars must be hosted by a CSU, Chico department. The Office of International Education (OIE) oversees invitations of visiting scholars for California State University, Chico, including assisting the scholar in obtaining a J-1 Exchange Visitor visa if needed.
