University Advancement

The CSUB University Advancement division brings a spirit of cooperation and a commitment to meeting the overall institutional goals. Its common purpose and singular cause is simply to advance the university.

The division’s core units — Fund Development, University Events, Alumni Relations, and Public Affairs and Communications — are driven to help all constituents, whether on campus or in the community, understand the merits of CSU Bakersfield and the value it holds for them.

We ask prospective students to invest four or more years of their lives with us and have their identity forever intertwined with ours. We ask the parents of those students to entrust their children to us. We ask alumni — even after they are distanced by hundreds of miles or a handful of decades — to keep us in their hearts, minds, and estate plans. We ask donors to recognize their own interests in our aspirations, their own passions in our programs. 

Please join us in advancing CSU Bakersfield.
