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 K-12 teacher competence in history and international studies. It is the mission of the California International Studies Project to prepare students to work, live and be informed, active citizens in a world where conditions, peoples, and distant events may have a critical impact on their lives and those of others. Through teacher development and K-12 student experience, the project seeks to improve historical and contemporary knowledge of 21st Century realities that are fundamentally altering the international landscape and domestic affairs.
