Our Mission

The OSR’s mission is to facilitate the research and creative activities of CSUSB graduate and undergraduate students by providing programs, activities, and funding opportunities.

Our Vision

The OSR will be the CSUSB entity that best facilitates CSUSB students’ inquiry, discovery, and creativity in all disciplines through faculty-student collaboration within and outside of the classroom in research and creative activities. All CSUSB students will have an opportunity to participate in course- and mentor-based research and creative activities as a part of their educational experience at CSUSB. By doing so, the OSR will contribute to CSUSB’s mission to offer a challenging and innovative environment to improve graduation rates, driven by teaching and research excellence, intellectual interaction and creativity.
