Together, we have the opportunity to lay the literal foundation that will further
cement CSUSM as the nexus of innovation
in our region. With initial funding from the California State University Board of Trustees and support from a feasibility study
completed by premier architectural firm BNIM, our next building – an Integrated Science and Engineering Building – will break ground soon.
Not only will this building be an exciting and energetic training ground for future
engineers, scientists, inventors, computer
programmers and tech-minded entrepreneurs, but it will also be a dynamic space that inspires collaboration and allows for
enriching hands-on, learn-by-doing opportunities.
Innovation thrives when diverse perspectives are around the table and in the laboratory. Diversity brings an opportunity to explore new ideas that haven’t previously been considered and unearth the greatest aha moments that will forever change the landscape of our lives. For more than 30 years, CSUSM has been blazing a trail for the exceptional minds that may have once thought college was out of their grasp. In fact, more than 60% of our students are the first in their family to earn a four-year degree. Together, we will open the gateway wide as we equip the brightest and most diverse students our region has ever known.
While state-funded plans call for a one-wing building, complementing state funding with additional, private philanthropic donations is critical for long-term growth and sustainability, as well as expanding the square footage with a second wing.
