Welcome to University Advancement at California State University San Marcos! We are dedicated to increasing awareness, community, tradition, and contributions to the University through alumni relations, communications, development, and special events.

University Advancement works hand-in-hand with the entire campus community, striving to complement the successes and accomplishments of students, faculty, staff, and alumni that make CSUSM an institution of distinction.

Our Development Team facilitates securing donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations. This includes offering services to faculty and staff who are interested in pursuing private grant support. If you are seeking assistance for grants in the public sector, please contact the Office of Graduate Studies and Research or the CSUSM Corporation.

We encourage you to learn more about our functions and departments:
