Faculty

Inspired to transform urban schools. Like you.

CSUDH's College of Education is widely recognized not only for its relevant credential, education and graduate programs, but also for its faculty. College of Education classes are taught by professors who bring practical knowledge as working educators and school leaders in some of America's best-performing schools, as well as a passionate commitment to improving access to quality education for every student in our urban schools.

With small class sizes and low student-to-faculty ratios, faculty remain accessible and available both in and outside of class. More than instructors, they mentor you to become the kind of inspiring teachers and educators who change students' lives.
