The fate of San Diego and San Diego State University are inextricably linked.
SDSU’s $5.67 billion annual economic impact makes it one of our region’s most important economic engines. Since 1897, the university has welcomed tens of thousands of the region’s brightest students, in turn producing graduates that fill our community with a highly qualified workforce of innovators, entrepreneurs, professionals, public servants and leaders.
But the landlocked geography of the SDSU campus has made much-needed growth incredibly difficult. Without critical investment to secure the university’s ability to expand, the SDSU economic engine will run out of steam.
