Greetings from the President


Since 1947, generations from a multitude of backgrounds have had their lives transformed at California State University, Los Angeles. Now, your time has arrived: it is your turn to make your experience in higher education into all that you hoped it might be so that you are well prepared to follow your life’s plans.

California—particularly Southern California—represents one of the world’s most powerful economies. Students at Cal State L.A. have the advantage of learning in a diverse environment that is at the heart of this dynamic, changing marketplace. We are proud of the professional, social and economic doors we have helped open for the students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators and friends who have been a part of Cal State L.A.’s far-reaching communities.

Today, as always, Cal State L.A. provides world class academic excellence, community service, and partnerships toward learning. Your part in gaining the most from your experience at Cal State L.A. is to become involved in not only your education, but in Cal State L.A.’s organizations, programs and cultural activities that will further enrich your educational experience.

The faculty, staff and administration of Cal State L.A. are here to help you take your place in, add your knowledge to, and give back toward helping improve our rapidly changing world. I look forward to witnessing the many successes to come from you, our students, as well as future Cal State L.A. alumni.

James M. Rosser
President
