Student Life

The Office of Student Life promotes an inclusive campus community and serves as a resource for students and their families. We work closely with the other deans and faculty on the campus to provide support, information, and referrals, and to facilitate resolution to student issues and problems.

We believe your time at Cal State Monterey Bay is not only about time spent in the classroom, but also the people with whom you interact and the involvement opportunities in which you take advantage. All of these will transform yourself, others, and the world around you. We believe your experience through reflection will inspire success.

We are here to support you, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need assistance.


We strive to be an inclusive, collaborative, and innovative unit who model exemplary leadership, a positive environment, and stewardship of resources to ensure the success of our diverse student body.


To inspire success, we engage and support students through transformative experiences.
