Faculty Innovation and Leadership Award

Unfortunately, the Faculty Innovation & Leadership Awards Program
is not accepting applications at this time​

As the natio​n's largest and most diverse four-year institution, the California State University (CSU) endeavors to be a national leader for providing affordable, high-quality degree opportunities for students from all backgrounds. On each CSU campus, outstanding faculty are leading the way, redesigning courses, advancing innovative student support programs, effectively using data to address equity gaps and collaborating beyond their campus to improve student outcomes. In this season of remarkable institutional transformation, CSU faculty are at the center of innovative thinking and practice required to significantly improve student success.

With generous support from foundation partners, the Faculty Innovation and Leadership Award Program recognizes CSU faculty accomplishments associated with student success or the implementation of innovative practices that improve student outcomes or eliminate equity gaps. The award acknowledges faculty who have demonstrated leadership at the program, department, college or university level to improve student success and outcomes in courses with traditionally low success rates or persistent equity gaps.
