Our faculty offer hands-on and collaborative learning experiences, cutting-edge technology and academic programs relevant to the rapidly changing global environment. We engage in the latest research and other creative activities to prepare our graduates to lead and compete in the digital age.

Students are active participants in the learning process and have the opportunity to engage with faculty while learning about complex subjects. Students work closely with junior and tenured faculty whose commitment to sustained excellence in teaching, research and community partnership enhances their learning.

CSUSM offers rigorous undergraduate and graduate programs distinguished by exemplary teaching, innovative curricula and the application of new technologies. We provide a range of services that respond to the needs of a diverse student body, expanding student access to an excellent and affordable education. As a public university, we ground our mission in the public trust, alignment with regional needs and sustained enrichment of the intellectual, civic, economic and cultural life of our region and state.

It is through their collaboration with faculty that students become prepared for the challenges and demands of today and tomorrow.
