The California State University is committed to educating skills-ready graduates for our state, providing fair compensation to our world-class faculty and staff, and fulfilling our mission of access and opportunity for every qualified student in California.
Our commitment to creating a bright California future requires sufficient, predictable and sustained investment from the state.
The CSU's $263 million budget proposal reflected a careful assessment of needs and priorities. The governor's budget proposal of $92 million—barely one-third of our need—does not cover even our most basic funding requirements.
The CSU stands ready to meet California’s workforce needs. To succeed, we need additional on-going state funding to increase tenure-track faculty and student-support services, expand courses, and welcome qualified California students.
Contact your state representatives. Help them understand that an investment in the CSU is a forward-thinking investment in our shared priorities and a prosperous future for California.
