Year-End Message from Dean Tarver Behring

As we move into the final weeks of this most unprecedented year of virtual instruction, we celebrate all members of our college community for their resiliency, commitment, and outstanding performance. A special congratulations to our credential candidates and graduates who are completing their programs! We are a mighty college and have continued to shine through the clouds of COVID-19.

The future looks hopeful as we see indicators that the pandemic is easing. Even so, our college continues to put the safety of all students, faculty, and staff first and will continue to offer courses in a mostly virtual format through the Fall 2021 semester, with the exception of some supervision courses and a few lecture sections. The fall schedule is now complete, and students can see how their classes will be offered by looking at the online class schedule. Please note that we plan to move the majority of our classes to an in-person format in the Spring 2022 semester, as long as safety permits this.

We are thrilled to share the good news that the Eisner Foundation board has approved a general operating grant in the amount of $400,000 over two years to CSUN for the Michael D. Eisner College of Education. This is a renewal of the 2-year support we received from the Eisner Foundation which ended in December, 2021. This funding is especially welcomed with the significant increase in student enrollment in our college credential programs as we work to meet the teacher shortage and diversify the teacher and other school-based workforce while dealing with budget cuts with the pandemic. Thank you very much to the Eisner Foundation for their continued support, and thanks to all of our college family who helped with this process. Read more
