About CSUSB A young, vibrant university, California State University, San Bernardino is one of the fastest growing universities in California, largely because of its expanding service area of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, which covers 27, 000 square miles - a territory larger than 10 states in the nation. More than 65, 000 students have graduated from CSUSB, including many who work in Southern California and make a major positive impact on the economy. Founded in 1965, CSUSB currently enrolls more than 17, 500 students and employs more than 2, 100 faculty and staff. Located equidistant between Los Angeles and the Palm Springs area, the university offers more than 70 traditional baccalaureate and master's degree programs and a wide variety of education credential and certificate programs, including many that have earned national recognition. Its business and entrepreneurship programs are nationally respected, as evidenced by CSUSB's 2006 ranking of fourth in the United States for graduate entrepreneur programs. Cal State San Bernardino is distinguished as the first Inland Empire university with prestigious national accreditation for its College of Business and Public Administration. The university's programs in computer science, geographic information and decision sciences, psychology, health, kinesiology, English, public administration, accounting and finance, and many others are all highly regarded. The College of Education now offers the university's first doctoral program, an Ed.D. in educational leadership. CSUSB's extended education programs in business writing and language skills, technology, entrepreneurship and conference management are some of the state's busiest. The university's student population is one of the most diverse in California, with a student enrollment so diverse that there is no majority ethnic group on campus. The growth of the region has meant continued capital development for the university, which continues to construct new facilities to provide students, faculty and staff with an excellent learning and working environment equipped with superior technological capabilities. Recent projects include the Chemical Sciences Building, Student Recreation and Fitness Center, University Village student housing complex, the expanded Santos Manuel Student Union, the renovated biological sciences and physical sciences buildings, the College of Education Building, two new parking structures and a new perimeter road to serve the 430-acre campus. CSUSB claims the largest indoor campus arena in San Bernardino and Riverside counties (Coussoulis Arena) and a renowned visual arts gallery and museum in the Robert V. Fullerton Art Museum, one among only 4 percent in the United States that are accredited by the American Association of Museums. Robert T. Bouttier (B.A. management 1977) is president and chief operating officer for the Automobile Club of Southern California. Bob, a 32-year veteran of the Auto Club, oversees the daily operations of the largest AAA-affiliated motor club in the country. In 2005, Bob was named chief operating officer for the organization and previously was senior vice president of marketing and member services. Cal State San Bernardino is the only campus in the CSU (and possibly the country) with a center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. The center is a nonpartisan domestic research and policy center that serves the region and nation by examining the ways that bigotry, advocacy of extreme methods, or the use of terrorism deny civil or human rights to people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or other relevant status characteristic.
