Visiting Faculty and Scholars
Teaching and Research Opportunities
In this spirit of global awareness, a cornerstone of Cal Maritime's mission, we have established formal exchange agreements with several maritime universities (current list). We welcome applications from scholars at these universities who wish to discuss mutually beneficial opportunities for teaching and research.
Inviting and/or accepting a visiting scholar to The California Maritime Academy involves two steps. First, the potential visiting scholar's interests must be matched with the interests of a Cal Maritime academic department. If there is a match, the second step is to obtain all the information necessary to complete a DS-2019 Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange for Vistor Status form (see Exchange Vistor Visa).
It is the collective decision of the academic department and the Academic Dean, the Provost, or the President to invite a visiting scholar to campus. Please note that no formal invitation can be made until all of the procedures outlined in the document below have been followed. The formal invitation letter comes from the Academic Dean.
