“I am consistently impressed with the breadth of commitment and support I see every day at CSUMB. Thank you to the entire Otter community for your support. CSUMB is a truly special place with a focus on successful student outcomes. With your support there are no limits to what we can accomplish together.”

- Vanya Quiñones, CSUMB President


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.

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.

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.


The mission of the CSUMB Alumni Association is to provide opportunities for alumni to remain engaged, stay connected, and give back to current and future students to support the mission of the university and enhance the well-being of alumni.
