Cal State L.A. consists of a vibrant and active community of teacher-scholars and students representative of the culturally rich and diverse region we serve.

Our faculty members bring a wealth of talent to our classrooms each day, and many have been recognized on the state, national, and international levels with awards for teaching, research and service. The faculty’s commitment to academic excellence and innovative scholarship, that is both fundamental and applied, enrich the surrounding region and combine into a fusion of ideas and practice that makes the Cal State L.A. educational experience a truly rewarding one for all students.

I encourage you to explore our academic programs and look forward to seeing you on campus.
