Dean's Message

Chinaka S. DomNwachukwu, Ph.D.
To students, staff, faculty, and all supporters of the College of Education, I am honored to be appointed Dean of the College of Education at this critical time in the life and history of our nation and this great institution.  It is indeed a privilege to join the eminent scholars and professionals that have built up this college over the years, and I am looking forward to the years ahead with hope and optimism.

For those who are not familiar with our college, the College of Education at California State University in San Bernardino consists of three departments: Teacher Education & Foundations, Special Education, Rehabilitation & Counseling, and Educational Leadership & Technology. The College houses six teaching credentials, 11 master's degree programs and a doctoral program in educational leadership. Several undergraduate and certificate programs are also offered through our College of Education. The College also runs a literacy center that serves the K-12 population in literacy development and reading support services. Apart from the university’s Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation, our college is fully accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, and houses one of the largest teacher credentialing programs in the California State University system. Our doctoral program is run by eminent professors who are scholars in their fields and disciplines.

Our vision in the College of Education is, “To be the premier provider of teachers, counselors, and educational leaders” in the area.  As we embark on the new and exciting adventures ahead, we hope to impact the Southern California communities and our state at large through graduates who would serve our communities with passion, compassion, and excellence. 

We are intentionally revamping our community business and educational partnerships, with the goal of delivering the best educational preparation in this area in the years ahead.  So, let me invite our local businesses, K-12 schools and school districts, religious and philanthropic organizations, to come and partner with us as we strive to make greater impacts on our community.  CSUSB reflects the dynamic diversity of this region and has the most diverse student population of any university in the Inland Empire. It has the second highest African American and Hispanic enrollments of all public universities in California, so there is no better place to invest your resources if you want to make a difference in people’s lives. If you are a prospective teacher, school counselor, coach, or administrator, check us out first, and I am sure you will commit to make your journey of educational preparation with us.
