Stanislaus State is investing in its Stockton location to better serve the needs of San Joaquin County, the most populous area in the University’s six-county service region. Enrollment in Stockton programs grew 17 percent last year. About 800 students count the site as their home campus, 8 percent of Stan State’s total enrollment.
The information regarding the Stockton focus was included in the latest edition of the ‘Stan State Daybook’ which is issued regularly to update the community on news and events at the California State University in Turlock.
Also included was information on tariffs, trade wars and Federal Reserve rate hikes, with officials noting that all will continue to have a more significant impact on the farm-based economy of the Central Valley than they will have on other regions, and the result will be slow economic growth in the Central Valley through 2018 and possibly beyond. The outlook is according to the biannual Business Forecast Report released earlier this month by Gökçe Soydemir, the Foster Farms Endowed Professor of Business Economics at Stanislaus State.
The Stan State community has also earmarked 50 percent of its Campus Cares fund collected through the end of the year to assist those at Chico State whose lives were impacted by the Camp Fire.
