About California State University-Dominguez Hills
Explore an alluring campus in the heart of the South Bay of Los Angeles. California State University, Dominguez Hills is a gem with an exceptional cast of faculty, staff, and students. Our state-of-the art educational institution is equipped with SMART classrooms, new sports facilities, and a serene environment for students to grow and learn. At CSUDH, we work with our community and friends closely to do outreach projects with area charities, non profit organizations, schools, and libraries.
Like many of you, I am new to this campus and I am excited and proud to be here. I have already found that this is a wonderful place where high caliber programs and exciting developments are a common occurrence.
You will find that our faculty and staff are second to none. They care about the students and their intellectual development, and they teach because they are passionate about their disciplines and are committed to student success. This university is a place that is well known for being supportive, accessible and welcoming.
You will see that our community clearly embraces diversity in every possible dimension: racial, cultural, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, religious, economic, political, and intellectual. We know that such an environment provides a distinct advantage for our students, because upon graduation they will be entering a diverse global society waiting for leaders like themselves to take their places. We truly believe we are one of the best urban universities in the country and that our graduates leave here not just better educated but better equipped for life.
We understand that a university experience includes not only what happens in the classroom but also around the campus and community. In January 2007, the Loker Student Union reopened, transforming the student experience. This state-of-the-art facility features a fine dining restaurant, an enhanced food court and sports bar, lounge and study areas, a new bookstore, new office space for student organizations and student government, conference rooms, and a grand and beautiful 500-seat ballroom. In addition, we will be breaking ground for a 140,000-square-foot addition to the library this fall. The new library facility will accommodate future growth far into the 21st century. The state-of-the-art library addition will double existing library space and provide expanded study areas, computer labs, book shelving, archival preservation areas, and group study rooms. The courtyard and patio will allow students to study and meet friends in a relaxed social setting.
