Access To Excellence2008 Full Report


The future quality of civic and economic life in California more than ever rests on the performance of the 23 universities that comprise the California State University. California’s future will hinge on its success in transitioning growing numbers of low-income, immigrant, and first-generation families into productive roles in society.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the success of the CSU in meeting the goals of this plan are absolutely central to the future quality of life in California: as goes the CSU, so goes California. The CSU is remarkably well-positioned to lead California in this great task.
