Key Initiatives

Give Purpose

Within only a half century, California Lutheran University has become the school of choice for students and faculty who are seeking to find and live their purpose and transform the world.

Our community, as a result, continues to grow in size and momentum. In just the last decade, despite challenges in the economy, we have added more than 263,000 square feet of instructional space and facilities to campus. In 2006, we dedicated a sports center, followed the next year by an aquatics center. A new residence hall was built in 2009, then a social and behavioral sciences building in 2010, and a sports stadium in 2011. In 2014, a new dining commons transformed the center of campus.

With your support, we can continue to meet key University initiatives and prepare Cal Lutheran for the next transformative chapter in our history.
