Faculty Affairs & Development


The Office of Faculty Affairs & Development (FAD), located within the Division of Academic Affairs at CSUDH, is responsible for professional, personnel, and labor relation services for Unit 3 Faculty Unit Employees (i.e., tenured and tenure-track faculty, lecturers, librarians, coaches, counselors, teaching associates, graduate assistants, and instructional student assistants).

The Office of Faculty Affairs & Development serves as a central clearinghouse for faculty-related procedures, policies, and programs. We are responsible for assisting faculty as they move through the University from appointment to retirement.

The Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs & Development works closely with the College Deans, Associate Deans, and Department Chairs on matters related to faculty reappointment, tenure and promotion, recruitment and retention, and interpreting the provisions outlined in the California Faculty Association and the Board of Trustees of the California State University (CFA/CSU) Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Given the broad scope of policies, procedures, documents, personnel forms, and collective bargaining agreement provisions applicable to all matters related to faculty, you are invited to use the links provided on this website to browse the materials and services. We encourage you to contact us at any time with your questions or concerns.
