Academic Responsibilities and Professional Obligations

The job of a faculty member is complex and challenging. Faculty deliver the core mission of the college, including teaching transfer, CTE, and professional students, stimulating scholarly discourse, and extending knowledge to the wider community. By their very nature, and by virtue of the high expectations the college has for faculty performance, these duties require deep knowledge, intellectual commitment, creativity, and original thought. CEI's faculty have these qualities in abundance.
