The Twentieth Campus. An Analysis of the California State University's Proposal To Establish a Full-Service Campus in the City of San Marcos in Northern San Diego County. Commission Report 89-2.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The California State University's (CSU) proposal to convert its North County Center in San Marcos from a permanent upper division and off-campus graduate center to the 20th full-service campus of the system is analyzed. The evolution of the CSU plan for serving the residents of northern San Diego County is described, including development of this center and the current proposal to expand it to a campus. The response of the California Postsecondary Education Commission to the proposal is then reported, in light of both the commission's criteria for approving new campuses and current restrictions on use of the term "university" for the campus. Finally, the rationale for the commission's recommendations on the conversion and appropriations for master planning are explained. Recommendations include: (1) approval of the conversion, with lower-division students entering no earlier than fall 1995; (2) continuation of master planning for the campus without interruption, with sufficient funds appropriated; (3) continuation of existing capital outlay appropriations for the center; (4) revision of opening enrollment projections for the campus; and (5) repeal of education codes relating to the process by which individual campus names are changed from "college" to "university." Related planning documents are appended, including a 98-page feasibility report. Contains 11 references. (MSE)
