CSU Chancellor's Office faculty resources

Professional development opportunities
A number of faculty professional development opportunities reach across the 23 campuses of the CSU to provide training, travel, funding, library and technology initiatives, and labor update information.  It is up to CSU faculty members to locate and register for these activities.  It is well worth the time involved searching the sites in order to enrich and improve life as a CSU faculty member.

Resources to support faculty activities
There are numerous personnel that support faculty activities related to academic technology, community engagement, and library resources.  Each of these has a webpage describing available services for faculty. The CSU system also offers labor relations updates to faculty on a dedication webpage.
