CSULB seeks to recruit faculty who enthusiastically support the University's strong commitment to the academic success of all of our students, including students of color, students with disabilities, students who are first generation to college, veterans, students with diverse socio-economic backgrounds, and students of diverse sexual orientations and gender expressions.

About Us

The Department of Teacher Education (TED) is composed of the Multiple Subject Credential Program, Single Subject Credential Program, Certificate Program in Reading and Literacy Added Authorization, Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, Master of Education in Dual Language Development, and Master of Education in Early Childhood Education. The faculty and staff strive to prepare knowledgeable, caring, reflective, and highly competent diverse teachers who are advocates for children, adolescents, and families. Our inquiry- and experience-based programs promote educational equity and excellence in contemporary, inclusive urban classrooms. We are seeking a chair who is equity-minded and ready to lead our department at our Hispanic Serving Institution and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution located in a city with a large Cambodian/Cambodian American population in an aspirational context for increasing local Black, Indigenous and People of Color enrollment. Our next department chair will join a community that is committed to supporting the development of educators to serve culturally and linguistically diverse students using collaborative, asset-based frameworks, culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogies, and innovative 21st century pedagogies and that values working with families and communities to support academic, linguistic, and social-emotional development of P-12 learners.

The College of Education at CSULB is amongst the premier educator preparation institutions in the state, preparing teachers, counselors, administrators, and community leaders to promote equity and excellence in diverse urban settings through effective pedagogy, evidence-based practices, collaboration, leadership, innovation, scholarship, and advocacy. The College of Education fosters an environment of rigorous learning, critical dialogue, and reflection, striving for inclusivity that embraces our mission of equity and excellence in our own scholarly work, practices, and policies. We seek colleagues who are committed to our mission and are skilled at teaching and working in environments that reflect CSULB's designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution and an Asian American, Native American and Pacific Islander Serving Institution.

The College serves approximately 3,000 students, many of whom are the first in their families to pursue college degrees and reflect the racially and ethnically diverse population of CSULB and our local communities. Our academic programs range from undergraduate, to master's and doctoral degrees, and education credentials that prepare candidates for careers in diverse, urban educational settings. With a low student to faculty ratio of 1:21, and strong, individualized advising from faculty and staff, students receive the support and attention needed to successfully complete their degrees in a timely fashion.

As expert researchers and scholars, College of Education faculty provide rigorous courses designed to challenge and engage students, connecting theory and research with practice. Our faculty provide experiences for College of Education students to explore the impact of their social identities and experiences in society that impact the students and clients they will serve, thereby fully preparing them for their chosen careers.

Clinical practice is central to programs in the College of Education. With over 100 area clinical practice partnerships, students within the College of Education gain invaluable hands-on experience with faculty mentors and skilled practitioners who help provide real world experience in diverse, urban settings, augmenting classroom instruction.
