Government and Community Relations

Government Relations

The Office of Government and Community Relations is dedicated to building mutually beneficial partnerships with business, government, and community-based organizations. In this role, we are committed to developing a climate in which CSUDH is viewed as the educational centerpiece of the South Bay region, worthy of investment and support from members of the greater community.

As part of the University Advancement team, the Office of Government and Community Relations coordinates the university’s legislative and advocacy efforts at the federal, state, and local levels.

Securing the resources that CSUDH requires to remain a leading urban university requires the active support of our faculty, students, staff, and alumni. From this website, you can remain up to date on the activities of the Office of Government Relations and learn how to get involved in helping CSUDH secure the resources it needs to remain a superior university.

Community Relations

This office also serves as the university's liaison to the broader community. We work with:

  • Local business organizations
  • Chambers of commerce
  • Non-profit groups
  • The community-at-large in the South Bay region and metropolitan Los Angeles County

As a liaison to these groups, we keep our community constituents informed about programs and activities at the university that would be beneficial or of interest to them, identify community needs and explore avenues to provide university resources to meet those needs, and create partnerships between these organizations and the university.
