Development Office

Why Give:

Recognizing the inequities that prevail in the communities we serve, the College of Education at CSULB is committed to preparing educators who promote excellence and equity in education. Our goal is to transform urban public education. We do this by recruiting and preparing excellent equity-minded teachers and leaders who will create the change we want to see across urban educational institutions. We do this by empowering faculty to engage in impactful and cutting edge teaching and research in collaboration with our PK-16 and community partners. We do this by creating an infrastructure of support for the educational endeavor. 

With your support we will positively impact academic and life outcomes of students and their families.

Giving Opportunities:

Scholarships & Fellowships

Creating or contributing to an educational scholarship fund is a meaningful way to give back to your community or to honor a loved one. Your support will provide our exceptional students with access to affordable, high-quality education and ensure that we graduate teachers who are not only highly qualified, but also highly effective in the classroom. Providing a scholarship in the name of an incredible educator, or supporter of education, is a rewarding way to honor that individual.

Contribute any amount to an existing scholarship fund.

Call or email our office to create a scholarship fund. Minimum named scholarships are $2,250 and endowed scholarships funds start at $25,000.

Dean’s Excellence Fund

Contributing to the Dean’s Excellence Fund allows the Dean the flexibility to promote the highest quality educational programs, research, public service and economic development activities for The College of Education. Your generous gift in support of the Dean’s Excellence Fund is especially meaningful because it expresses your confidence in fulfilling the collective mission of the College.
