Faculty Mentor Directory

Our highly skilled team of educators, known as faculty mentors, are more than just CalSouthern’s epicenter of knowledge and expertise. We refer to them as mentors because they are also our learners’ direct resource for one-on-one support and guidance throughout every course along the way. The team below is made up of skilled and experienced experts as well as dedicated, responsive and highly qualified educators. For questions or changes regarding the Faculty Mentor Directory, please contact media@calsouthern.edu.
