The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on a sunny day.

The DAAD San Francisco Information Center was established in 2002 in order to better serve the needs of students, faculty, and institutions of higher education in the western half of the U.S. who are interested in international exchange. The primary goal of the Information Center is to build and strengthen ties between German and North American universities, and to promote study and research in Germany.
