Recognized as one of the nation's finest public liberal arts
and sciences colleges, Sonoma State University is experiencing
a time of extraordinary growth and change.
In recent years, SSU has truly come into its own.
All over campus you can feel the spirit of an energized academic
institution that educates more than 8,000 students each year,
and sustains more than 5,300 jobs in the region. Sonoma State
graduates earn $528 million annually, and the University's impact
on the regional economy exceeds $383 million.
Partnerships with the local wine industry, local school districts,
and high-tech companies are representative of the inter-dependence
between the University and its community. Numerous regional and
national programs have been developed at SSU, and education
models such as the innovative nurse practitioner distance delivery
program, have improved the quality of life of countless individuals
who would otherwise not be served.
Sonoma State thrives today because of its students,
1,500 dedicated faculty and staff, over 51,000 alumni, and friends
who support the University's role as a community partner and premier
education institution. More than four decades of excellence has
established strong ties between SSU and the community, and
in that short span of time, a strong tradition of support has emerged.
Sonoma State relies on the generous support of alumni
and friends to sustain its academic programs and to share in
its visions for the future. Your gift will
help us provide the resources we need to ensure the finest quality
of education for our students and the opportunity to keep the energy
alive with new and innovative programs, talented faculty and staff,
and state-of-the-art facilities.
Please take a look at the many ways
you can give to SSU and how your support makes this
University what is it today.
