Cal State University Associates


The Cal State University Associates is a premier organization of supporters of the Palm Desert Campus of California State University, San Bernardino. Members serve as good will ambassadors for the campus in the community and contribute tax-deductible yearly dues, the majority of which go toward scholarships for deserving students at the campus. Events begin with a social hour at 6 p.m., when appetizers and beverages are served. Members have the opportunity to “meet and greet” Dr. Sharon Brown-Welty, dean of the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus, fellow Associates members and special guests. The Program begins at 7:00 p.m. The Cal State University Associates has already donated more than $100,000 to the campus' scholarship program! In addition to helping the campus at a time of declining state support and increased costs, members receive special benefits such as free admission to many campus events as well as invitations to exclusive "members only" programs. Mission The mission of the Cal State University Associates is to advance the quality of educational opportunities for all ages by encouraging private and corporate financial support for current and future needs. 2017 - 2018 Speaker Series Creating Brighter Futures Tuesday, January 9, 2018 6:00 PM The Legalization of Marijuana: Weed 101-Entrepreneurial Opportunity, Regulatory Oversight, Enforcement.
