Our mission is to find and prepare passionate teachers who are committed to improving educational opportunities for children and making a difference in our communities!

Welcome to the California STEM Institute for Innovation and Improvement, CSI3 at CSU Dominguez Hills!   We are dedicated to providing future and current CSI3 teachers with a combination of educational experienced geared to prepare them for 21st Century Learners.  Through all of our programs , we are systematically addressing the shortage of STEM Teachers in high-need schools in and around the Los Angeles area and across the state.  CSI3  has developed innovative undergraduate, credential, and graduate programs, and has formed multiple partnerships with high-need schools and school districts as well as community colleges. 

We offer all of our program participants ongoing advising and financial and academic support.  Above all, we offer our participants the opportunity to make a difference where they are needed most.  If you are as passionate about education and making a difference as we are, you have come to the right place!

We are excited to provide you with different opportunities to reach your goal of becoming a TEACHER!  We hope you find an option that fits you.
