one of 23 universities of the California State University System. The
campus, with an enrollment of 14,000 students, is noted for its excellence
in education as well as its beauty and proximity to all major Bay Area
cities. The campus community benefits from an increasingly multicultural
environment characteristic of metropolitan universities, and maintains a
strong commitment to diversity issues. The campus is planning for an
