About the California State Alumni Association, Inc. and CSUalumni.org

Thank you for visiting CSUalumni.org, the website of the Calfiornia State Alumni Association, Inc. and its CSU Alumni San Jose chapter.  The CSSA proudly supports and is supported by the movement to restore a stronger campus-based California State University identity at the CSU’s campuses, and in particular at the CSU’s founding campus in San Jose (aka “San Jose State”).

Thus, in addition to being for Californians and others who love California, The CSSA is also for students, alumni, educators and other Californians who advocate restoration of balance between state and city identities in the California State University system as a whole, and in particular at its founding campus in San Jose (presently know as “San Jose State”).

The CSSA was founded in November of March 2004, and is headquartered in the greater San Jose, Calfiornia, area.

Our Mission

Our mission is 1) to restore a strong campus-based California State identity to the Calfiornia State University (CSU) system; 2) to help safeguard, protect and commemorate the history and identity of the original California State [Normal School and University] in San Jose, California; and 3) to promote recognition of this identity by students, alumni, the University, the State of California and the people of California.
