About The California International Studies Project

The California International Studies Project (CISP) is a statewide network that connects universities, schools, and districts in collaborative efforts to increase PK-12 teacher competence in history and global studies. CISP promotes the development of global competence and active citizenship for all students. Through professional learning programs that engage academic scholars and teacher leaders in planning, implementation, and evaluation, CISP seeks to improve historical and contemporary knowledge of 21st century realities that are fundamentally altering the international landscape and domestic affairs.
