For immediate release:
CSULA's Charter College of Education Reorganization

In order to better prepare future educators in their respective areas, the Charter College of Education at Cal State L.A. has now been reorganized into three divisions. This restructure, put into place at the beginning of the Fall Quarter 2004, will not only provide cost-saving incentives but will enhance curricular programs.

The Division of Curriculum and Instruction, the largest in student enrollment, remains the same. The other two divisions absorbed programs that had been a part of the former Division of Administration and Counseling. To reflect this change, two of the divisions have been renamed.*

According to College Dean Carol A. Bartell, the reorganization was based on the fit of the degree programs to their new divisions, which will be mutually beneficial to students and faculty. It also resulted in a more equitable distribution of faculty across divisions.

The three divisions and the program areas included in each are:

*Division of Applied and Advanced Studies in Education (Antony J. Kunnan, Chair)
- Educational Administration
- Educational Foundations
- Educational Research, Evaluation, and Statistics:
Instructional Technology and Computer Education
- Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL)
- Urban Learning
