Office of the President

Dr. Ellen Neufeldt

Welcome to Cal State San Marcos! For nearly 30 years, we have been dedicated to serving our students and our region. I have discovered here a welcoming community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends who exemplify the values of inclusive excellence, lifelong learning and community engagement. Every day we work to create an academic environment that empowers students to pursue their ideas and passions, while also enriching and reflecting our region and beyond.

Cal State San Marcos is brimming with possibilities! I look forward to meeting you during my formal Listening and Learning Tour, and I invite you to learn more about our campus on these pages and to be a part of our remarkable university.
