“We’ll have $2 million to help plan for and figure out what will a CSU in Stockton look like,” said Tubbs, who served on Newsom’s transition team after he was elected in November to replace termed-out Gov. Jerry Brown.

Eggman a longtime proponent for a CSU Stockton, added, “San Joaquin County is one of the fastest-growing regions in the state of California. And we know that we are undereducated. ... How do you change that picture? You get us a four-year public university.”

Stockton, with about 315,000 residents, has been served for years by a satellite campus at University Park that is connected to CSU Stanislaus’ main campus 45 miles away in Turlock. About 800 students attend the Stockton campus. CSU Stanislaus serves about 9,000 additional students in Turlock.

A $7 billion bond measure that could have funded a California State University, Stockton died on the state Assembly floor Friday. Partially because the CSU system didn’t support it.

Feel free to join me in being irritated with the California State University Chancellor’s Office. The chancellor supported a rival, $4 billion bond measure that would fund repairs to existing CSU and University of California campuses but build no new ones.

...

So what now? Eggman and her co-authors will reintroduce the bill next year. Brown will be termed out; gubernatorial frontrunner Gavin Newsom supports a CSU, Stockton.

Eggman and others will push for creation of an independent office that determines objectively when a new CSU is needed, and where.
