Faculty Resources

At the Center for Global Education, we provide faculty with the resources to plan and lead successful immersions. 

Spanish Immersions

Being able to speak Spanish has become a priority to many immersion-leading Faculty. Through the Jesuit network, it is possible for faculty and staff from the University of San Francisco to participate in a Spanish Language Program in Puebla and Cali, Colombia.
