Advance Partnerships for Public Good

CSULB’s robust portfolio of public, private, government and non-profit partnerships is one of its greatest assets, and a centralized partnership structure will consolidate effort, enable cost-saving economies of scale, help external partners navigate CSULB’s networks and enhance internal and external collaborations campus-wide. Developing our partnership infrastructure will create more opportunities to implement impactful curricula and experiential learning, and open doors for even more ambitious projects for the public good.

Rather than develop new structures, many existing offices within the university which regularly engage the community and partner industries can be restructured to serve as an internal infrastructure to support collaboration and centralize efforts.

To solve regional and global challenges, a Beach Grand Challenge Infrastructure designed to leverage our intellectual capital will serve as a cornerstone that further links education and industry in LA and Orange Counties.
