The People's University, A History of the California State University System by Donald R. Gerth, former President of Sacramento State and CSU Dominguez Hills earlier this year. To a large extent Dr. Gerth used the archives of the CSU System located at CSU Dominguez Hills.
Since its founding as a single institution in San Francisco in the years after the Gold Rush, the California State University has grown into a system of 23 campuses that enroll more than 450,000 students. The People's University is the story of that extraordinary growth.
Today, the California State University is the state s 1,000 mile campus. Its programs reach every corner of the state, and its mission of access, affordability, and quality touches countless people of all ages. CSU is a critical component of California s celebrated system of public higher education, working in partnership with the 10 campuses of the University of California and the state's 109 Community College campuses.
