Through the Study Abroad Office and different departments on campus, professors and staff from SVSU participate in a wide variety of teaching, research, and other professional activities ranging from short-term international conferences to multi-month teaching experiences. SVSU has partnerships with three universities that offer regular faculty exchange programs*.

*Opportunities for exchange in China have been nonexistent since March 2020.

Inbound Faculty Exchange

Help an exchange faculty member feel at home at SVSU!

SVSU is proud to host faculty from around the world who teach, conduct research, and engage in a wide variety of activities as part of the SVSU community. SVSU typically hosts two to five visitors each year with priority given to visitors from our partner universities. 

The experience of these visiting faculty members can be richer and more authentic when members of the SVSU community invite and accompany them to academic and cultural experiences (on and off campus). 

If you are willing to have a visiting faculty member accompany you to an on or off campus experience, please e-mail Ju Yu Chen to express your interest. She can be reached at
