“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.
