President CastroBoldly Together

President Joseph I. Castro

As I approach my third anniversary as President of Fresno State, I am extremely grateful for the community support that has propelled this University, and our region, forward.

Because of community partnerships, we created the Student Cupboard and Clothing Closet to provide much needed essentials for students. The DISCOVERe tablet program has provided an estimated 73 percent cost savings over a traditional course, and our graduation rate has increased 10 percent in the last two years. Additionally, community service by Fresno State students, faculty and staff during the 2015-16 academic year exceeded 1 million hours. These are just a few examples which show that when Community and University work together as one, our region can thrive.
