California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) seeks nominations and applications for the next Dean of the College of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (CSTEM).

CSTEM offers seven bachelor of science degrees, four master of science degrees, and contributes richly to the University’s general education program.

Since its founding in 1989 as the California State University’s 20th campus, CSUSM has grown to serve over 17,000 students across its 43 undergraduate and 24 graduate programs. A comprehensive public university offering diverse academic programs, the campus prides itself on exemplary teaching, innovative and experiential curricula, and the application of new technologies to solve real problems. A national model for student access and success, over 60 percent of CSUSM students come from an underrepresented background and more than 50 percent of graduates are the first in their families to earn a bachelor’s degree. CSUSM is designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and the student body is extraordinarily diverse and proudly reflective of its surrounding community. Additionally, the University enrolls more Native American students per capita than any other California State University (CSU) campus.

The Dean will also be driven by a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and will champion the University’s mission of student success.
