President’s Message

Mildred Garcia, PresidentEvery day, I am honored and proud to lead this remarkable institution.

We offer an outstanding educational and co-curricular experience with both the facilities and network of student support services to help you succeed. As our mission statement proclaims, this is a university where “learning is preeminent,” and truly a place where you can thrive and excel.

Our eight colleges offer 107 high-caliber degree programs, including 50 master’s degrees and two doctorates. With full  accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, many of our degree programs are further distinguished by national accreditations and associations. In fact, a number of these programs have achieved national prominence because of our outstanding faculty and alumni achievements.

As a Cal State Fullerton student, you will learn from highly accomplished faculty members who create an exceptional learning environment and take a personal interest in your success. We encourage you to go beyond the classroom, and apply knowledge to real-world experiences - undergraduate research, professional internships, student competitions, study abroad and more. You can also enhance your education in meaningful ways that include service-learning, community service and volunteerism.

I know you will be impressed with the comfortable, welcoming atmosphere on campus. Our multicultural University community will enrich your college experience with opportunities to learn, socialize and work together with students from diverse backgrounds. What’s more, you gain invaluable perspectives and skills that enhance your ability to compete and succeed beyond college.

A university education prepares you for a future full of choices, whether it’s launching a rewarding career in your chosen profession or preparing for graduate and professional programs. At Cal State Fullerton, incredible things happen when we reach higher. Our entire University community shares a commitment to helping you to succeed.
