President's Welcome

Tomás D. Morales, Ph.D.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to California State University, San Bernardino, an institution committed to student success both in and out of the classroom.

Our university has a rich tradition of providing quality education in an environment that reflects the dynamic diversity of the region. Our outstanding faculty are award-winning scholars, highly recognized for their academic contributions and teaching. Our experienced staff are caring and courteous, dedicated to assisting with any questions or needs. Together, our faculty and staff foster a culture of excellence that embraces and empowers students.

Our beautiful and spacious campus, nestled in the foothills of the picturesque San Bernardino Mountains, offers a wonderful environment in which to learn. You will find it a warm and welcoming place with exceptional facilities and extensive resources that provide a world-class educational experience, and which is home to the most diverse student population of any university in the Inland Empire.

With nearly 50 undergraduate majors and more than 25 graduate programs featuring small class sizes and extensive augmented learning opportunities such as internships, research and travel abroad, I am certain CSUSB has a degree program that is right for you.

Some of the country’s premier ratings annually recognize CSUSB as a leading educational institution. The Princeton Review named the Jack H. Brown College of Business & Public Administration a Best Business School, and CEO Magazine ranks it among the world’s top business schools for its MBA programs. Money Magazine lists CSUSB as one of the country’s most transformative colleges. And Forbes rates ours as one of the best value colleges/universities in the nation, offering an excellent return to students on their collegiate investment.

These are exciting times at Cal State San Bernardino. A 120,000-square foot expansion of the Santos Manuel Student Union has opened, which will provide additional space for recreation, student services, meetings and social gatherings.  This will transform the SMSU into a true student hub at the heart of our campus. The groundbreaking for our new 74,817 square foot Performing Arts Center took place this past February. With a 500-seat music and theater instructional space and a new 19,020 square foot building for the College of Arts and Letters, along with renovation of the existing Performing Arts building, it will provide students with access to state-of-the-art facilities, to further enhance their educational experience. We expect that this will be the premier performing arts facility for our community and the Inland Empire once it is completed. 

All this and more demonstrates how, at CSUSB, We Define the Future.

Further information about CSUSB can be found online at  Because of COVID health and wellness issues, we now offer virtual, self-guided visits.  Campus visits and group tours are also available, depending upon pandemic conditions. You can sign up for them on our campus visit webpage:  

I hope you will look closely at all we have to offer and reach out to connect with our faculty, staff and students. I assure you it will be time well spent.
