RATIONALE: The CSU will receive $690 million from this bond issue for much needed infrastructure improvements, construction and equipment for new facilities. Infrastructure needs continue to be an urgent priority for the CSU for reasons of safety as well as an ability to offer modern, high-quality instruction to California citizens. Construction and equipment of new facilities are ongoing needs for campuses as they seek to provide modern learning experiences for students in all fields of study and as overall CSU system enrollment growth adds new classroom pressures. Among the capital needs for high quality learning experiences on campuses of the CSU are modern laboratories for sciences, engineering and other students, up-to-date studios for the performing arts, and 21st-century access to information and other academic technology.
