President's Message

It is an honor to serve as president of California State University, Fullerton – a diverse student-centered community of learners and educators, one that is consistently ranked among the top ten comprehensive public universities in the West, and first among "Best Regional Universities in the West for students who graduate with the least amount of debt."

Serving more than 38,000 students, many of whom are the first in their family to attend college, Cal State Fullerton is one of the most transformative universities in the state. Our 107 degree programs in eight colleges reflect a range of scholarship that aligns with our commitment to inclusiveness and the multi-cultural perspectives of a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. The University is ranked first in the state in bachelor’s degrees earned by Hispanics and fourth in the nation in bachelor’s degrees earned by underrepresented students, and our 230,000 alumni stand as a testament to the power of equitable access to quality public higher education.

Indeed, ours is a community of high academic standards, stellar student support services, and one that respects and embraces all who come here. It is my hope that our website leaves you with this same welcoming spirit, serves all your information needs, and not only encourages you to learn more about this great University, but inspires you to visit us in person in the near future.

Mildred García, Ed.D.
