The following statem​​​​ent can be attributed to CSU Interim Chancellor Jolene Koester:

“The California State University (CSU) is grateful that, in his 2023-24 January budget proposal, Governor Newsom indicated that he plans to fully fund the second year of the multi-year compact with the CSU. This will result in an increase of $227.3 million in ongoing funding in support of many of the university's key priorities. This proposal, despite uncertainty surrounding the state's economic circumstances, reinforces the administration's commitment to the CSU, it's belief in our mission and appreciation of our successes in transforming the lives of Californians."​

​On January 10, 2023, Governor Newsom proposed a 2023-24 budget that would allocate $227.3 million in recurring funding for the CSU, a 5 percent general fund increase or 2.85 percent overall increase to the university's operating budget.​
