Who is the CSUSM Corporation?

CSUSM Corporation is one of three self-supporting auxiliary organizations of CSUSM and governed by a 12 member Board of Directors. Our purpose is to advance CSUSM’s mission by providing instructional support and services not typically furnished by the state. CSUSM Corporation Operations Include:

Office of Sponsored Projects

human resources and payroll

Campus Dining Services   business operations and finance

real estate and property management

commercial partners management

Student Housing

summer conferences

 

Designed solely to carry out vital functions that are not state supported or that would be challenging for the universities, auxiliaries in the CSU assist by enhancing the student educational experience through their supplemental services, and providing much needed revenue for university projects and needs. Existing since the 1920’s, auxiliary organizations have grown with the CSU system, serving as an essential supplement to its educational activities. To learn more about Auxiliary Organizations, please review the CSU Auxiliary Fact Sheet.
