There is a sea of change in the world of higher education. Budgets are being squeezed, our students are more diverse, technology is changing rapidly, and the public is demanding accountability.
Taking the helm in 2004 as the universityís fourth president, Dr. Horace Mitchell leads with optimism and vigor. He has set an ambitious vision for excellence and leads the campus forward during turbulent times.
California State University, Bakersfield remains committed to moving forward - with courage and optimism, faithful to our mission - to provide opportunity for higher education to all students, to teach our students to become productive, responsible citizens in the wider community, and to serve the community through our endeavors and achievements.
In the CSUB family, we are proud of the unique perspective from which we can look back with pride and satisfaction and, more important, look ahead with optimism and vigor.
