While California State University, Stanislaus has often been highly ranked for its affordability and quality of education for the student body, support staff members say there is one rank University administration should not be proud of. According to the Cal State University Employees Union (CSUEU), CSU Stanislaus is ranked 23 out of the 24 CSU campuses for the average staff salary, which includes personnel ranging from janitorial staff to analyst, secretaries, lab technicians, information technology personnel, none of whom are student workers.
California State University, Stanislaus President Joseph F. Sheley addressed hundreds of campus community members today during his annual address at the University. His opening point of emphasis focused on financial matters. He noted the budget was flat for this year, however he cautioned, “there is not nearly enough funding available to permit us to address many of our challenges, let alone pursue our aspirations. Nor can we bet on the future with any real confidence. Prop 30 expires just two years from now and then we will be back into the discussion about how to fund higher education again.”
California State University, Stanislaus’ President Joseph F. Sheley will hold his fourth annual address Wednesday on campus. In his annual fall address, the president will speak to the campus community reviewing the University’s progress on its key goals, identifying challenges that lie in the year ahead, and setting a course for facing those challenges.
California State University, Stanislaus kicked off the 2014 Fall semester Thursday with a total headcount of 8,998 students, compared to 8,720 students for Fall of 2013. CSU Stanislaus remains one of the most affordable colleges in the state, with tuition and fees for a full-time undergraduate student totaling $3,341 per semester plus $180 parking permit fee.
According to CSU Stanislaus spokesperson James Leonard, the total cost to attend CSU Stanislaus went up $10 per semester for this year due to cost of living adjustments built into student fees.
