The Italian Program exists thanks to an agreement between the Italian American community in the area and CSULB. This collaboration led to the establishment of the program itself as well as the Center for Italian Studies, named in honor of Mr. George L. Graziadio. The Center offers scholarships to study in Italy and regularly organizes workshops on Italian teaching. Its program of events is often shaped in collaboration with Italian and Italian American institutions and organizations in the area.
