The College of Arts and Letters
Salutes its Outstanding Professors

For more than half a century at California State University, Los Angeles, some of the most gifted and honored educators in the nation have given students the benefit of their expertise and wisdom. Undergraduates and graduate students pursuing degrees have been guided in their specific disciplines while learning critical thinking skills from the prominent scientists, scholars, and artists who teach at Cal State L.A.

The College of Arts and Letters has a fine tradition of being represented amongst the University's top professors.

We congratulate the recipients of the University-based Outstanding Professor Award from the College of Arts and Letters!
