About our faculty

Professor Hongde Hu and student

At CSUMB, we're not about huge lecture halls. We're about learning, connecting, problem-solving and working together. The faculty at CSUMB want to help students do just that. In fact, many of them gave up the lecture-hall lifestyle to teach at this university. Our professors have won prestigious awards, traveled the world and done ground-breaking research. But what drives them is working with students.

In the beginning, our First Year Seminar faculty help students launch their college careers. They prepare students to succeed by providing personal attention and mentoring. Throughout their education, students get hands-on experience along with theory. Faculty take them into the community and onto the water. By the time students graduate, our Capstone professors have pushed them to deliver their best work.
