Endowment Campaign

"All students deserve the opportunity to receive a college education. This campaign ensures that those with special needs can experience the joy of learning and the career paths that only a college education can bring." - George Deukmejian, Campaign Chair. Governor of California, 1983 - 1991


A Message from the Director

Pursuing a college education is an endeavor which requires hard work and a high level of commitment. For students with a disability it can be exceptionally challenging. Without help, a disability can become an obstacle that would keep many talented and promising students from realizing the dream of a college education and a meaningful career.

California State University, Long Beach recognized the need to provide special assistance to its students with disabilities and established one of the nation's first Disabled Students Services programs in 1973. Through CSULB's Bob Murphy Access Center programs, students receive help in completing their college education while learning adaptive strategies for daily living and future employment. For over three decades, the Bob Murphy Access Center program at CSU Long Beach has been recognized as among the leading educational support systems of its kind in the United States.
