Our Sites

The first California History-Social Science Project (CHSSP) activity began in 1989 at UCLA, shortly after the California Subject Matter Projects (CSMP) was created in 1988. Other campus sites arose beginning in 1991. CHSSP sites are located in departments of history and education at universities across the state. Scholars and K-12 teachers, current and former, collaborate to lead engaging professional development programs for the teachers in their region.

Each site’s leadership team is generally composed of at least one site director (usually a former K12 teacher or historian) and one or more faculty advisors.
