Historically about 95% of our total budget of covers personnel costs. Current estimate: 97% Of this amount, approximately 70% is committed to permanent employees.
Approximately 70% of our budget is already accounted for! The bulk of our so-called “discretionary” costs are dedicated to the classroom to cover adjunct faculty costs, summer school, and basic operations. Conclusion: we have no real discretionary costs.
Operating Budget 2008/09: $28.3M Operating Budget 2009/10: $25.1M Operating Budget (best guess) $22.3M Cumulative Budget Cut: $6M or 21.2% The District is over its enrollment cap. There are no funds to add sections, and more reductions in sections may be necessary.

The college must remain a comprehensive institution but must also must reconnect with its primary identity. Given limited resources for student support, the college must make significant changes in the manner in which student services are delivered. Given the current economic climate as well as the significant improvement to college facilities, the college has a one-time opportunity to recapture a student population that it has lost over the last 20+ years. It takes all of us: faculty, staff and administrators to provide an outstanding education to our community. The college will be staffed to reflect this basic value.
CSM is an academic institution with a rich tradition. CSM has the best transfer program in the Bay Area and one of the best in the state. CSM is the clear preference for transfer-bound students. CSM has outstanding, relevant, cutting-edge CTE programs that lead to demonstrated high-wage, high-demand careers. Partnerships with businesses are paramount for financial support, curriculum guidance, and job placement. CSM’s developmental educational program is designed based upon best practices. Students leave our developmental education program well- prepared to succeed in other college courses. Every individual at CSM has an unparalleled commitment to student success. We meet students where they are at, and take them to where they need to go. However, we hold all students to high expectations. CSM is recognized for its innovative practices and its willingness to take calculated risks.
