Transparency & Accountability

California State University, Dominguez Hills strives to become the model urban university. Part of that charge requires acknowledging when change is necessary, actively listening to our campus community, and maintaining flexibility to evolve our processes and the ways that we engage with one another.

During our 2022-23 academic year, we have hosted difficult conversations on a number of topics. As an institution grounded in social justice, equity, and inclusion, we know that difficulty can create reform. We will not shy away from the discourse. After all, we are a learning institution, and at all levels, we can learn from one another. As such, we have created this Transparency and Accountability website—a space for us to share information and be transparent about our decisions and our direction. We welcome your thoughts and hope you will help us build solutions to make our community healthier, stronger, and more just.

This website will be regularly updated with information related to topics most critical to our campus community. To complement this website, the campus leaders will host ongoing Conversations that Matter meetings where the entire campus community is encouraged to attend and be a part of the discussion.
