What is FAC?
In Fall 1998, Families Across Cultures (FAC) began as a project
to bring together international graduate students, students with
families, and resident adult reentry students who have similar campus
experiences. Co-sponsored by the Office of International Education
& Exchange (IEE) and the Women's Center / Adult Reentry
Center and funded by Student Affairs, FAC provides networking opportunities
and resources vital to campus life for both international students
and U.S. students at CSUF.
The strength of the program lies in the diversity of its members
from countries such as Benin, Brazil, Chile, China, Dominica, Egypt,
Finland, Germany, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Palestine,
Senegal, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the United States.
