Message from the Dean

Welcome Message from Dean, Jessica Zacher Pandya, Ph.D.

Welcome to the College of Education at CSU Dominguez Hills!

I am excited to begin my tenure as Dean of the College during our transition back to campus. I joined Dominguez Hills’ Toro Family because I was impressed by the great work we do, inspiring and leading for an incredibly complex and diverse world. I look forward to meeting students, staff and faculty as we all come back and work together to prepare teachers, counselors, and school leaders. We have so much to offer our communities, from equity-minded teachers to school leaders committed to social and educational justice.

We are coming back this fall—to some extent—and we’re planning for a more complete return to campus by Spring 2022. Staff will be on campus starting in late July; please check the COE website for specific hours for each office. If you want to come and see us in person, please do—there will be staff and faculty and administrators here to help you learn more about our programs. And, if you want to visit us online, we are available for virtual help as well. Stay safe and welcome back!
