Ways To Give

Ways to give to CSULB

Only with the generosity of friends and alumni can the College of Liberal Arts at California State University, Long Beach continue to expand the boundaries of educational, intellectual, creative and multicultural opportunities that will assure lifelong student success. The University is state assisted, not state supported—less than 50 percent of CSULB’s overall budget is provided by the State of California.

Private support enables faculty to enhance their models of instruction. It updates buildings, equipping them with electronic instruction capabilities and workstations. It creates centers in which researchers and students utilize the best available tools in their fields.

Renowned faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and visionary administrators combine to create the best possible student experience. With your help, the College of Liberal Arts will continue to deliver the quality education they are known to provide.
