Faculty Center for Excellence

Welcome to the FCE! 

We bring together faculty development opportunities from across CSUSB, including those from our Teaching Resource Center (TRC@FCE), Instructional Design and Academic Technologies (IDAT@FCE), Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP@FCE), and Extended Reality for Learning (xREAL) Lab units, as well as those from the Office of Academic Research, Office of Community Engagement, the Center for International Studies and Programs, and Writing Intensive Program. We are located in the Faculty Center for Excellence, Pfau Library PL-4005.

While, space permitting, faculty may participate in more than one of the four certificate programs below (Equity-Minded Teaching, Teaching with Technology, Assessment Remix, and Student Engagement in Every Instructional Mode), they will receive professional development funding ($500) for only one of them during the 2023-2024 academic year.

In addition to the $500 for one certificate program, faculty can receive more professional development funds through programs listed below from the FCE’s partner offices: Academic Research, Student Research, Community Engagement, the Center for International Studies and Programs, and the Writing Intensive Program.

For FCE program descriptions and meeting dates, please see our Descriptions page.
