CSUSM Learning Assistant Program
The LA program helps support math and science courses and provides math and science majors with a structured introduction to teaching. The CSUSM LA program is modeled on the LA program at the University of Colorado.
Learning Assistant Program goals:
- Recruit and prepare talented science majors for careers in teaching
- Engage science faculty in the recruitment and preparation of future teachers
- Improve the quality of science education for all undergraduates
- Transform departmental cultures to value research-based teaching for ourselves and for our students

CSUSM Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative
The CSUSM LA program is part of CSUSM's MSTI program, part of the systemwide CSU Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative. One goal of our program is to find talented science and math majors who might become interested in high school teaching as a result of their LA experience.
