A weekly blog from Tom Reeser, KOCT’s Executive Director
On February 4th the President of Cal State University San Marcos, Karen Haynes, gave her annual Report to the Community entitled: Impacting Tomorrow…Together. KOCT will air this informative talk and, in the near future, additional programming from the campus as well.
President Karen Haynes spoke of the central role the campus plays in North San Diego County as they endeavor to develop the workforce of tomorrow. She discussed the insufficient state support proposed by our governor—funding for only 1% growth in enrollment for the entire CSU system! This would, she explained, provide funding for only 160 additional funded students—even though our local campus has grown by 24% over the past three years AND the fall 2015 enrollment was the largest ever at 14,000 students.
A good way to keep up with the activities at this vibrant campus is to check out President Haynes’ blog. (Note: She is also a blogger for the Huffington Post!) In her talk she proudly announced that the U.S. Dept. of Education has awarded the campus a $2.6 million dollar grant to enhance efforts to increase retention and graduation rates among Latino students.
