CSULB Celebrated as One of State's Best

Published February 19, 2020

Cal State Long Beach has been recognized as one of the “10 Best Colleges in California in 2020” in a new list compiled by the online magazine, Money. The institutions making the list scored highly on a survey of affordability, quality of education, and student outcomes.

This distinction follows Money’s rankings this past fall that named Long Beach State as the No. 10 “Best Public College in the Nation” and the No. 13 “Best College for Your Money”.

Recently, CSULB was also ranked No. 7 nationally in CollegeNET’s Social Mobility Index, a survey that examines how well colleges and universities advance their low-income students into high wage jobs.

“I am so proud to serve with our faculty and staff who are recognized for high impact educational experiences that prepare students for journeys to success and accelerate their socioeconomic mobility,” said President Jane Close Conoley when Money released its first round of rankings in August 2019. “Each year, we work to increase diversity while removing barriers to equity of opportunity, retention and graduation while providing superior teaching, research, creative activity and action for the public good.”
