Our Mission

As a comprehensive, regional university, California State University, Fullerton strives to be a center of activity essential to the intellectual, cultural, and economic development of our region. CSU Fullerton students develop habits of intellectual inquiry, prepare for challenging professions, strengthen relationships with their communities, and contribute productively to society.

The Irvine Campus extends the mission of CSU Fullerton by providing interested lower-division, upper-division, transfer, graduate and post-baccalaureate students with complete major and degree programs, and community outreach experiences that target regionally-specific academic and professional opportunities.

The Irvine Campus also serves as host to many University Extended Education programs, offering a wide selection of educational programs to working professionals, international students and groups, and Open University and Intersession students.

The administration, faculty, and staff of the Irvine Campus share the CSU Fullerton campus commitment to high-quality instruction and student learning success, facilitating local area community relationships, and assuring timely graduation or program completion.
