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.
