California State University, Long Beach Master Plan Update
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
Each of the 23 universities within the CSU system is required by the CSU Board of Trustees to prepare and periodically update a physical Master Plan. The Master Plan is intended to guide the physical campus development necessary to support the needs of the current student, faculty, and staff campus populations as well as projected student enrollment and campus population growth, which serves as the basis for determining long-term academic, administrative, student support, student housing, and athletic and recreational program space needs, in accordance with approved educational policies and objectives. CSULB is one of the largest universities in the State by enrollment and continues to grow, often receiving the most undergraduate applications of any CSU, and enrolls one of the largest graduate student populations across the CSU system and the state of California. CSULB is proposing a comprehensive update of the current campus Master Plan, last updated in 2008, to accommodate enrollment growth, a campus population, and physical development of the campus through the horizon year 2035 (Master Plan Update, proposed project, or project). The Master Plan Update focuses on optimizing the existing physical assets of the campus, enhancing the efficiency of facilities throughout the campus, and evolving the existing buildings and programs to accommodate future university needs. The “project” that is analyzed in the Draft EIR includes specific development projects identified in the Master Plan Update that are expected to be developed in the near-term (2-5 years), mid-term (6-10 years), and longterm (11 years or more). The underlying purpose of the Master Plan Update is to support and advance the CSULB mission, vision, and values by guiding the physical development of the campus and to accommodate changes in enrollment through the horizon year 2035. CSULB’s projected enrollment at the horizon year 2035 is approximately 36,000 Full-Time-Equivalent Students (FTES), including approximately 33,000 FTES on campus and 3,000 FTES off-campus. The Master Plan Update is intended to accommodate this projected student enrollment and the corresponding campus population.
