Innovation in action
When CSUMB opened, we were heralded as the California State University's "21st campus for the 21st Century." Back then, it meant being one of the first universities in the nation to offer high-speed wireless internet coverage all across campus. Today, we take internet access for granted and have forged ahead to embrace new technologies and new ideas in the classroom and in the way we do business.
For example, students and faculty working in the Seafloor Mapping Lab are pushing the boundaries of oceanic research, using GPS tools to study the bottom of the ocean with unprecedented detail and precision.
Or take a look at our math program, which has become a national model recognized for its innovative use of tablet PCs for instruction. Students in the social sciences, such as archaeology, also use tablet devices during hands-on projects at several local mission excavation sites.
In short, at Cal State Monterey Bay, we're asking the unanswered questions, thinking big while remaining practical, and eager to use the latest technological tools to find new solutions.
