Welcome to Cal State San Marcos!
I am pleased to welcome you to our 21st-century university, and I invite you to browse our Website to learn more about our remarkable success story.
California State University San Marcos, one of the youngest and fastest-growing CSU campuses, is a pioneer in providing broad access to quality instruction and a trail-blazer in hands-on education relevant to today's global and technology-rich society. We are nationally recognized as a model of public accountability, institutional innovation and community engagement. We build regional alliances that foster economic, social, and cultural development. We inspire our students to be exceptional, and we focus on assuring the progress of ALL of them to graduation. Our faculty engages in the latest research and other creative activities, and our graduates are prepared to lead and compete in the digital age.
As Cal State San Marcos enters its third decade, we are renewing our commitment to the historic mission of public higher education with a special emphasis on five strategic priority areas: academic excellence, student life, campus climate, community partnerships, and educational equity. These principles are central to who we are, where we have been, and what we want to be.
