In our family lives, careers, and community relations, we all strive for excellence; however, excellence is more than just a sentiment or set of objectives. While it is important to talk about what we plan to do, it is more important to show the evidence. By giving to The President’s Associates, the most prestigious and longstanding giving society at California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB), you have an opportunity to help us demonstrate our evidence of excellence.

Each year, this esteemed group supports excellence at CSUB. In recent years, funds generously contributed by the members of The President’s Associates have recognized excellent faculty and provided $2,000 awards to top-ranking CSUB students to participate in the Student Research Scholars Program. This program gives students the opportunity to execute in-depth research projects and participate in oral competitions under the supervision of a faculty mentor -- a rigorous course of action that positions the students to develop mentally, socially and academically, while solidifying paths for their futures. With your contribution, a greater number of students may participate in this amazing program, increasing the evidence of excellence at CSUB.
