President Tomás D. Morales and two of Cal State San Bernardino’s volunteer leaders are at the state Capitol in Sacramento, today, Tuesday, March 14, joining California State University Chancellor Timothy White, CSU trustees, campus presidents, alumni, students and volunteers for CSU Advocacy Day.
Morales and the CSUSB team are meeting with members of CSUSB’s legislative delegation to ask for their support of the trustees’ full funding request. Morales also will meet with Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount), along with other CSU presidents, to discuss the Graduation Initiative 2025, closing achievement gaps, and how the CSU serves as a springboard to upward mobility for its students and their families.
Mark Edwards, vice president of the CSUSB Philanthropic Foundation Board, and Dia Poole, a CSUSB alumna and president of the CSU Alumni Council, are with Morales in Sacramento.
The day before, Monday, March 13, the California State Student Association, joined by the CSUSB Associated Students Inc. Lobby Corps, visited with state lawmakers and also asked for their support of the CSU trustees budget request. The CSSA held its annual California Higher Education Student Summit this past weekend in Sacramento.
