Dear Campus Community:

CSUCI’s International Faculty and Staff Association (IFSA) stands united in our support to the people of Ukraine, some of whom are also our colleagues here at CSUCI. Both Ukraine and Russia are represented in our membership, and we stand united in solidarity against the senseless aggression toward a sovereign country and civilians. Our immediate work involves supporting members of our campus community, many of whom and their families overseas, are deeply impacted by the violence and trauma during these difficult hours.  Our Ukrainian colleague, Dr. Alona Kryshchenko, has provided links below for ways to send aid to Ukraine. If you have any questions, please contact her at
