NEWS: CSU Quality Assurance program receives national “Making a Difference for Students Award: Outstanding Impact by an Organization” from Quality Matters.

There are many skeptics who question the quality of online teaching and therefore it is necessary to identify how to prepare instructors to effectively teach hybrid or online courses. In commitment to quality, the CSU offers multiples services and resources to faculty and students regarding: Instructional Quality; Universal Design for Learning/Accessibility, and; Academic Integrity.
