Listening and Learning Tour

  • Faculty Listening Tour
  • Family Listening Tour
  • Staff Listening Tour
  • Alumni Listening Tour

In July 2019, President Ellen Neufeldt arrived at CSUSM as the university’s fourth president and a resolve to engage diverse voices from across campus in conversation about the past, present and future of Cal State San Marcos.

To continue to keep the conversation going, President Neufeldt is committed to hosting monthly Listening and Learning sessions. Intentionally capped at 18 people per meeting to keep the conversations intimate and informal, attendees are welcome to share their ideas, questions, suggestions or concerns. In particular, President Neufeldt is interested in your answers to the following questions:

  • What do you value most about CSUSM?
  • What are CSUSM's strengths and how do we build on them?
  • What are our challenges?
  • What makes CSUSM distinctive?

Small Meeting Sessions
President Neufeldt is inviting students, faculty, and staff to join her for informal meetings. Capacity will be capped at 10 people per meeting on a first-come, first-serve basis.  To accomodate all those who would like to participate, if you have recently attended a listening and learning session with President Neufeldt within the last six months, we kindly ask that you email pres@csusm.edu to be placed on a waiting list. You will be contacted if there are open spots.

Strategic Planning


Informed by the conversations President Neufeldt had during her 2019 – 2020 formal Listening and Learning Tour, a strategic planning process will launch in fall 2020. CSUSM’s next strategic plan will chart a course forward and establish a new common vision for CSUSM.

Your voice is essential to the strategic planning process. A website will be launched soon with more information on how to participate and share your hopes and dreams for Cal State San Marcos.
