CSULB has been named among "America's Best Universities" by U.S. News and World Report and a “Best Value" by the Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
In 2014-15 we received Gov. Jerry Brown’s award for Innovation in Higher Education and the Excellence and Innovation Award for Student Success and College Completion from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities.
This recognition is the result of sustained efforts on the part of many people across the campus working to improve retention and graduation rates, the quality of the student experience, support for faculty, our technological infrastructure and our physical campus.
CSULB now aims to achieve still greater distinction within the strategic pillars of transformation, unequaled access and a greater community. Our Strategic Priorities and Goals outline how we will follow through on our commitments over the next three-year planning period and beyond.
