Research Centers and Institutes

Besides our multidisciplinary departments and academic programs, the College of Arts and Letters also has many other unique programs dedicated to research. We are proud to be a part of the SDSU Areas of Excellence Initiative; two of these areas include CAL faculty in positions of leadership. Under this initiative, new tenure-track faculty positions are allocated to advance existing and future areas of scholarly excellence, and to foster interdisciplinary collaborations in research and creative endeavors.
