Centers and Institutes

Centers and Institutes at CSUSM facilitate the conduct and dissemination of research, perform public service, or provide special training.  Their purpose is, generally, to bring into focus the communication, learning, research, or other efforts of faculty, students, and staff interested in an area of study or service not normally offered by a single academic department or program. A center or institute can enhance service and professional development opportunities for students, faculty, and staff; build links with government, industry and community organizations; foster interdisciplinary work; aid in obtaining external support; and complement the instructional program.
