Invest in the future

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.

What We Need

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.

Why It's Important

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.
