Special Recognition to Our Faculty and Staff of the Ed.D. Programs

As we celebrate 21 new doctors of education, we also give a resounding thanks to all faculty and staff who supported this CC 09 Cohort as well as our three other Ed.D. cohorts. We are fortunate to have nearly 70 core and affiliated faculty teaching and advising in the Community College Ed.D. Program and the PK-12 School/District Ed.D. Program. While most of our faculty are from the Michael D. Eisner College of Education, we also have faculty from other CSUN colleges. In addition, we recognize Gloria Derge, our mission control administrative assistant, and Dr. Jinyi “Jason” Li, our highly capable research associate.
