Scholar recipient with a supporterThe Friends of the Charter College of Education was founded in 1978 to support the College of Education at California State University, Los Angeles. As one of the oldest support groups at the university, the Friends sponsors and/or co-sponsors events that strive to enhance education and the art of teaching.

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 events - the Distinguished Educators Award Dinner - the Friends help to create and sustain the unique strengths of the Charter College of Education.

Membership in Friends is open to university faculty, administrators, current students, alumni, community members and others who are interested in supporting the needs of students and programs in the Charter College of Education.

It is through membership in the Friends that individuals who care about quality education can have a stake in the future of tomorrow's educators.
