What is CSUSB President's Volunteer Service Award?

The CSUSB President's Volunteer Service Award (CPVSA) is a recognition of outstanding volunteer service from CSUSB's President, Dr. Tomás Morales.

The award recognizes non-paid work in public service for the common good, meaning the off-campus community receives a direct benefit from your service.  Our focus is public service, and our goal is to recognize you for your efforts in the community.

ALL CSUSB students, faculty, staff and administrators are encouraged to apply!
