CSUSB serves approximately 20,000 students, of which 81% are first-generation college students and graduates about 5,000 students annually.

At CSUSB, diversity, equity and inclusion are values central to our mission. We recognize that diversity and inclusion in all its forms are necessary for our institutional success. By fully leveraging our diverse experiences, backgrounds and insights, we inspire innovation, challenge the status quo and create better outcomes for our students and community. As part of CSUSB's commitment to hire, develop and retain a diverse faculty, we offer a variety of networking, mentoring and development programs for our junior faculty. We are committed to building and sustaining a CSUSB community that is supportive and inclusive of all individuals. Qualified applicants with experience in ethnically diverse settings and/or who demonstrate a commitment to serving diverse student populations are strongly encouraged to apply. CSUSB has received the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, which recognizes CSUSB's ongoing commitment to service-learning, a high-impact practice that combines classroom instruction with meaningful volunteer service and correlates strongly to student success.


The Department of Management at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) seeks a diverse group of outstanding applicants for an open-rank tenure track position in the area of Sustainability Management or a closely related field such as Business Ethics and Strategy starting from Fall 2023.
