At Cal State Long Beach, we believe diversity is our strength, equity our responsibility, and that we must cultivate resilience in our personal and professional lives, our finances, and importantly in our climate.

The Status of Women

The President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) serves the campus community by initiating, advocating and implementing action to ensure that the university responds to the needs of all CSULB women students, faculty, staff and administrators.



The Presidential Commission on Sustainability (PCS) was established in 2019 with a mission to integrate sustainability, into the all aspects of the university. This requires an intentional and simultaneous focus on environmental, social, and economic health.


Equity and Change

The work of the President’s Commission on Equity and Change will enable our university to offer every campus community member a fair opportunity to excel; to transcend ourselves and embed the values of our many communities in the fiber of our organizations.
