Last November, the SDSU West initiative was passed by more than 54% of San Diego voters! These results make it abundantly clear San Diegans support growing San Diego State University. We could not have made it to this point without the tireless support of so many of you. But our work isn’t done yet! As productive discussions between SDSU and the City take place, it’s more important now than ever that we show our support for SDSU Mission Valley.Add Your Name
Dear San Diego City Councilmember,
More than 125 years ago, San Diego State University put its first shovel in the ground of this great City.
To hundreds of thousands of alumni and millions of San Diegans, SDSU’s history is our own.
Now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to secure that history for future Aztecs for Life.
It's an opportunity for the State and the City to work together, as they did to create UCSD.
It’s an opportunity to protect our environment and repair our once-beautiful river.
It’s an opportunity to build a Riverpark instead of a strip mall.
It’s an opportunity to prioritize education, research, and technology.
And it’s an opportunity to plant the heart of an economic boom in place of a parking lot.
It is both unfortunate and unexplainable that some politicians at the City have taken an adversarial attitude toward the voters who approved SDSU Mission Valley.
We are not in a battle with each other. We are a community, partners, ready to pursue opportunities together.
Please, do not pass on this opportunity. Lead.
Throughout its history, San Diego’s oldest and largest university has financed and built many of their projects using public/private partnerships that take advantage of alumni contributions, fundraising efforts and revenue bonds. In their most recent project, the South Campus Plaza, SDSU funded the $143 million project with no state funds, tuition fees or taxes.Learn more
