Who we are?
The CSULB South Bay Regional Council is a group of South Bay based alumni, parents and friends who are committed to furthering the mission of the university by promoting student success, providing philanthropic support and contributing to the development of CSULB’s regional network.
What do we do?
Build Beach Pride in the region by creating opportunities that engage and rally our South Bay “family” and connect its members with CSULB students and graduates. Our South Bay council members:
- Provide annual philanthropic support to fund council member priorities
- Support student success by building connections with current students and alumni
- Host, plan and/or attend CSULB regional activities and meeting in South Bay
- Identify and reach out to other South Bay constituents to expand the council
How does it work?
Council members will gather throughout the year at convenient locations in the South Bay to strategize on how to meet the objectives of the council while furthering the mission of the university.
How do we make a difference?
The South Bay Regional Council provides opportunities for social interaction, networking, volunteer service, professional development and philanthropic support that build affinity, assist current students and recent graduates, and promote “The Beach” as a leader in southern California.
