Teaching Academy


In collaboration with the Teaching Resource Center, the CSUSB Teaching Academy supports teaching and learning at all levels and in all contexts of university activity, and will serve as a focal point for the university’s commitment to this end. In pursuing this goal, the Academy will enhance the intellectual climate, promote discourse among all members of the University community, and serve as an advocate for learning and teaching initiatives and innovations.


The TA Cabinet will organize TA events and activities and serve as liaisons to the Teaching Resource Center, Faculty Senate and campus administration on matters related to teaching.  The TA Cabinet is comprised of 11 members: 1 elected from each College and the Library and 5 at-large members to be appointed by the Faculty Senate.
