18,000 strong and growing
More than 18,000 people have graduated from CSUMB since the university was founded in 1994. Among their ranks are an Academy Award winner, a teacher of the year, a global wine industry executive, a New York Times journalist, and a lead LinkedIn web developer, just to name a few.
Many go on to scientific research careers (some with the help of prestigious National Science Foundation fellowships), others become leaders in community organizing and politics. The pioneering spirit nurtured at CSUMB leads many to start their own businesses in a wide range of fields - from technology firms to restaurants to organic farms. Still more give back to their communities by working in education and nonprofit organizations.
