President’s Message

Mildred Garcia, President

Led by an incredibly diverse and high-quality team of faculty and staff, California State University, Fullerton offers an outstanding educational experience that supports all students in not only defining their academic goals, but also achieving them to the fullest potential. As we often say, “Titans Reach Higher,” and this site is replete with evidence that our curriculum is grounded in academic excellence and uniquely designed to elevate the aspirations of all of the more than 40,000 diverse Titans we serve.

Our eight colleges offer 109 high-caliber degree programs - 57 undergraduate and 52 graduate, including a doctorate in education and doctor in nursing practice - with full accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission. Our degree programs are further distinguished by faculty and staff who are focused on and dedicated to student success - from application to graduation and beyond. Much of our momentum in this arena begins with what we call “HIPs” (High-Impact Practices), curricular and co-curricular experiences proven to promote student success through active, collaborative and experiential learning such as undergraduate research, study abroad and community service.

I encourage all of our diverse students to not only seek out HIP opportunities, but to also find other ways to get involved in campus life. Join one of our nearly 400 student clubs, attend an athletic event, volunteer in the community, become a student leader; just as your potential for greatness is limitless, so too are the paths that can help get you there. With this in mind, I ask that you determine your graduation date, write it down on a piece of paper and place it prominently where you will see it every day - then let us know how we can support you in reaching that date with your newly conferred degree in hand!
