ACE Internationalization Lab Current Participant

Welcome to International Affairs!

On behalf of the SDSU International Affairs team, I invite you to engage with us. Whether you want to learn more about international programs, research, and partnerships—or whether you want to get involved in global learning or initiatives that address the needs in our border region—we are here to help. As partners to our binational and global SDSU communities, we look forward to supporting accessible and equitable opportunities that empower you and our learners everywhere, no matter where they’re located.

As a transborder HSI, SDSU launched its Inaugural Global Seal of Biliteracy in Spanish in Spring 2021 to value and honor the language of our CaliBaja region. Interested in obtaining a Global Seal of Biliteracy? Visit our Global Seal webpage and learn more about a Fowler Student who first earned a SDSU Global Seal of Biliteracy!
