Office of Undergraduate Studies

Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Studies!

Mission

The Office of Undergraduate Studies (OUGS) provides cross-college and –divisional leadership and support to ensure an integrated undergraduate experience at CSUSM.  By serving our 21st century learners holistically, we prepare them for diverse and demanding educational environments.  Through collaborative approaches and high-impact practices (HIPs), we ensure early mastery of critical skills, foster intellectual independence, and champion creative inquiry.  With the intentional and continuous support of OUGS, our students graduate equipped to advance human knowledge and ready to contribute to an ever-changing global society.

Vision

OUGS seeks to inspire students to become curious, thoughtful, ethical, capable, and culturally intelligent learners who persist in their education and realize their full academic, personal, and professional potential.
