CSUDH Allocated Over $60 Million in State Budget Package
California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) received good news with the recent release of the 2021 California state budget. The $262.2 billion package, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in early July, includes $60 million earmarked for a trio of CSUDH campus infrastructure projects, and $1 million for the campus’ Mervyn M. Dymally African American Political and Economic Institute.
CSUDH President Thomas A. Parham enthusiastically welcomed the news, saying, “The state’s 2021 allocation of resources to address critical infrastructure needs on the Dominguez Hills campus is an investment that will yield long-term dividends. Targeting these funds to a campus bursting with potential, yet long neglected and insufficiently resourced, is what authentic equity looks like in the realm of public policy and state budgeting.
“I am grateful for the support of State Senator Steven Bradford and the California Legislative Black Caucus, who advocated for both the CSU system and Dominguez Hills specifically. This allocation is a game changer for the campus.”
