About the Friends of the CCOE
The Annual Distinguished Educators Award Dinner is hosted by the Friends of the Charter College of Education. The Friends were founded in 1978 to support the Charter College of Education at Cal State LA. As one of the oldest support groups at the university, the Friends co-sponsor events that strive to enhance education and the art of being an educator or educational leader!
From academic workshops and professional development for faculty to annual new teacher recognition and student recruitment activities, to one of Los Angeles County's most highly regarded professional achievement awards events - the Distinguished Educators Award Dinner - the Friends help to create and sustain the unique strengths of the Charter College of Education.
