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.

I invite you to come and tour our spacious campus, nestled in the foothills of the picturesque San Bernardino Mountains. You will find it a warm and welcoming place with exceptional facilities and extensive resources that establish 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. We recently completed the Center for Global Innovation, new home of our College of Extended & Global Education and hub for the university’s global activities. The three-story, 71,000-square-foot facility features classrooms, multiuse spaces, an auditorium and a rooftop terrace, dedicated to supporting international students and scholars as well as faculty and students engaged in education abroad programs. A 120,000-square foot expansion of the Santos Manuel Student Union is underway that, when completed, will provide additional space for recreation, student services, meetings and social gatherings. 

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

Whether you come visit us personally or view us online at, I hope you will look close at all we have to offer and reach out to connect with our faculty, staff or students. I assure you it will be time well spent.

I look forward to seeing you on campus.
