Campaign Exceeds $100M Goal

We would like to thank our supporters for making our first comprehensive campaign a success. On December 31, 2020, we exceeded our 100M goal by $822,000. CSUMB is grateful to the community for their generous donations, helping us exceed our fundraising goals and helping our students achieve their educational dreams.

This comprehensive campaign plan, will invest thoughtfully in students, faculty, our campus and our region to enable innovations in our model of education and to accelerate our progress to the front ranks of California's great public universities.

DISCOVER OUR INITIATIVES

Professor lecturing students

This goal comprises two initiatives: expanding our faculty, and rewarding its most creative members. Specifically, we seek to establish new endowed professorships throughout the university. We also seek to encourage exceptional teaching and scholarship of our faculty by supporting programs and opportunities that encourage research and innovation.

Graduation student smiling

One of the key goals of CSUMB's strategic plan is ensuring the pathway to student success through enriching the total education experience. We seek to fund new and expanded initiatives that support increasing our four-year graduation rate from 30.1% to 44%, and improving the six-year graduation rate from 59.3% to 63%. We will achieve this by eliminating achievement gaps, improving time to degree.

Group of students standing around

We are excited by the prospect of marshaling CSUMB talent to meet the challenges - educational, economic, health, environmental - of the Monterey Bay region. This means both strengthening existing centers of excellence and creating new ones.

Comprehensive means meeting the most compelling needs of CSUMB and pursuing our most exciting and promising opportunities. Realistic means acknowledgment that we are still a young university. Our alumni population is comparatively small, and most of its members are still early in their careers. What follows, therefore, are goals that we believe are achievable. The remarkable generosity of our friends and alumni in recent years gives us great confidence.

- Barbara Zappas, Vice President of University Advan
