Welcome to the Office of Faculty Affairs

We are committed to supporting the academic careers of the over 900 faculty members and 570 Academic Student Employees at CSUSM.   

Our team assists faculty at all stages of their careers: hiring new faculty, managing the promotion and tenure process, facilitating evaluation, supporting academic advancement and career development, helping faculty navigate life events and encouraging a healthy work-life balance.  We foster a collegial and inclusive work environment and ensure Collective Bargaining Agreements and all academic policies and procedures are correctly implemented and followed.

Diversity among faculty benefits our students and strengthens excellence in teaching, research and service.  We recruit, support and retain excellent faculty by championing diversity, equity and inclusive excellence; teaming with hiring committees, Deans and the Provost. I am proud of the progress we are making and excited about our goals for the future.

We look forward to working with you.
